PANO – EU in 2012 will assist eight northeast provinces, Dien Bien, Yen Bai, Son la, Hoa Binh, Phu Thu, Ha Giang, Lai Chau and Lao Cai, in a tourism project, “Environment and society responsible tourism (ESRT) development programme”, according to a seminar, “Carry out activities in the ESRT project in eight northeast provinces”, on December 27 th in Lao Cai City.

Accordingly, ESRT will assist the provinces in setting up a Management Board to carry out inter-regional tourism activities and build up cooperation regulations among provinces.

In addition, EU will also carry out sustainable tourism development projects, hold tourism activities among ethnic groups for special tourism destinations. These activities aim to meet the demand of visitors to discover and travel as well as to raise living standards for local people. The project will also offer an opportunity for these provinces to work with tourism businesses through various tourism activities.

The ESRT project, worth €11million, is the largest tourism technical assistance program in Vietnam, which has been initiated by EU. The project is based on an initiative of the Netherlands Development Organisation (SNV) to bring benefit to around 250,000 people in eight needy provinces in Vietnam.
