Can Tho City has welcomed nearly 5.2 million domestic and international tourists from the beginning of this year, up 10.7 per cent over the same period of 2017, said the Can Tho People’s Committee. Its tourism revenue was estimated to reach VND2,181 billion, fulfilling 62.3 per cent of the full-year plan and up 22.3 per cent year on year.
The outcome results from the city’s effective socioeconomic development strategy to 2020, in which tourism is defined as a very important sector. The Can Tho Party Committee issued a resolution on accelerating tourism development with the goal of becoming a key economic sector of Can Tho City by 2020 and affirming brand name and sustainable development as well as an important contribution of the tourism sector in the city’s service structure and growth.
