Hue plans sustainable tourism development

The People’s Committee of Hue City hosted a workshop on making plan for Hue’s sustainable tourism development by 2020 on January 19.

Jordi Gable Lopez, Director of bilateral programme of the Spainish Agency for International Cooperation in Hanoi, co-
organiser of the workshop, said he hoped that the project will contribute to improving the city residents’ life besides preserving cultural preservation values and facilitating tourism and economic development.

Started in August 2008, so far, the project’s major components, including setting up a centre for visitors, have been completed.

The imperial city of Hue, recognised as the world heritage site by the UNESCO is the starting point of a tour crossing the Central Vietnam.

Rich in history and tradition, the city’s unique music and cuisine facilitate its tourism development.
