Highlighting the Party and State’s policy to turn tourism into a spearhead economic sector, Phuc suggested that the firm and other investors should work to introduce unique and impressive tourism products that are supported by locals.

 

The Prime Minister lauded the firm’s investments in many huge projects across Vietnam, including the world’s longest suspension cable to Fansipan Mountain in northern Lao Cai province, saying these have created jobs and contributed to socio-economic growth of many localities as well as the development of Vietnam’s tourism trademark, Vietnam News Agency reported.

 

Sun Group has run tourism and resort projects in Lao Cai, Phu Quoc, Da Nang and Quang Nam.

 

He noted that Vietnam enjoyed a growth of 20 per cent in the number of tourists in 2016 and 30 per cent in the first quarter of this year.

 

In the first quarter of 2017, Phu Quoc island welcomed about 553,500 visitors, a surge of 82.7 per cent year-on-year, including 139,000 foreigners, up 53 per cent over the same time in 2016.

 

He also praised the authorities of Phu Quoc island district and Kien Giang province for adopting mechanisms to attract giant firms to invest in tourism infrastructure in Phu Quoc, regarding the move as a valuable experience in tourism development for localities.
