For the Quy Nhon market, Hung Thinh and Vietravel will jointly carry out promotion programs and connect with potential international tourism markets in Europe, the US, Australia, Japan, Korea and Hong Kong to enhance its advantages as a coastal city on the regional and international tourism map.
Binh Dinh province has targeted attracting 3.4 million visitors. Cooperation between reputable large enterprises in the industry such as Vietravel and Hung Thinh Corporation is needed, said Nguyen Quoc Ky.
Ky hopes that the cooperation will extend to enterprises of other business sectors as part of the strategy to revitalize the tourism industry as well as the Vietnamese economy.
High-quality human resources needed
With the speedy development of the tourism industry in recent years, Quy Nhon is facing a shortage of high-quality human resources that meet international standards. To satisfy the demand, Hung Thinh Group signed a cooperation agreement with Quy Nhon University and Pegasus International School to deploy full-time and short-term training programmes.
Hung Thinh Land has decided to sponsor VND100 billion for the program over three years. The funding will be used to support training, providing 10,000 jobs over five years for tourism workers in Binh Dinh.
Hung Thinh Group always cooperates with leading local and foreign enterprises to promote Quy Nhon’s tourism brand, contributing to the socioeconomic development, Nguyen Dinh Trung, Chairman of Hung Thinh Group, said.
