According to Mr. Bui Anh Tuan, Deputy Minister of Culture, Sport and Tourism, Vietnam will ensure the security and safety for tourists visiting Vietnam, especially Chinese tourists.
Recently, Vietnam and China have tension in East Sea which affect on the relationship between two countries. This tension has triggered considerable fall in the number of visitors from such countries as China, Hong Kong and Taiwan and had negative impacts on the tourism. Besides, some Vietnamese traveling agents, hotels or restaurants decide to refuse to serve Chinese travelers.
“In 2013, there are 1.8 million Chinese visitors coming to Vietnam and there are also 1.1 million Vietnamese people visiting China”, said Tuan. This is a win-win number for both country, and there is no reason to give it up these advantages that tourism bring for the two. That is reason why Vietnam commit to keep international tourists in general and Chinese tourists in particular secured and safe, by certain measures.
Moreover, the Minister of Culture, Sport and Tourism will directly steer local tourism provinces, such as Quang Ninh, Hai Phong, Da Nang, Khanh Hoa, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, etc, especially provinces sharing the same border gates with China such as Quang Ninh to implement appropriate measures to manage security and safety for foreigners.
