Spain helps improve Vietnam’s tourism capacity – The Spanish government will provide 400,000 euros in non-refundable aid for a project to help Vietnam raise the capacity of its tourism sector from now until 2020, with a vision for 2030.

Spanish Ambassador to Vietnam Fernando Curcio Ruigomez and Vietnamese Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports, and Tourism, Ho Anh Tuan, signed an agreement to this effect in Hanoi on November 29.

The project aims to develop sustainable tourism in line with Vietnam’s strategy for that sector, with the initial focus on improving the management capacity in the local tourism industry.

The project also seeks to diversify tourism products while preserving and building on the unique traditional cultures and values of Vietnam.

Addressing the signing ceremony, Ambassador Ruigomez said he hoped that under the project, Spanish experts will introduce Vietnam to new international standards, thereby helping to improve its competitiveness and develop a socially responsible tourism industry.

He said the project is expected to generate jobs for local people while minimizing negative impacts from the development of tourism.
