Vietnam’s tourism is set to fight against illegal wildlife trade

 Wednesday, June 7, 2023 


Even though the pandemic considerably affected the tourism industry of Viet Nam, at present, domestic travel is reviving slowly. As per the Viet Nam Tourism Administration, around 103 million local tourists travelled within the country in 2022 and tourists from China to Viet Nam might reach 4.5 million in 2023. It’s almost 50-80 per cent of pre-epidemic levels.

This revival in international and local travellers to Viet Nam ahs a chance to encourage huge demand for buying elephant ivory and other prohibited wildlife products.

According to a 2020 GlobeScan survey2, for instance, Viet Nam was the country that was hugely visited by Chinese tourists to buy ivory or rhino horn products abroad as ivory trade of China was banned in 2017.

One of the most-visited provinces by both Chinese and domestic travellers, in today’s context in Quang Ninh, almost 80 participants from the tourism assembled to share their experiences and resolutions to battle against illegal wildlife trade and encouraging sustainable tourism.

In the policies, strategies and planning of the Province, the development of sustainable and inclusive tourism on the basis og green growth is a cross-cutting requirement.
