State agencies in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue will organise a tourism forum in Hue City on September 18 to explore ways to develop smart and sustainable tourism.

The event, co-held by the departments of Tourism and of Information and Communications and the provincial Institute of Research and Development, will be attended by officials of tourism management agencies, businesses and experts in the fields of tourism, information and technology.

The central city wants to develop smart tourism to improve the State management’s role in developing the local tourism industry in a more comprehensive and effective manner.

Accordingly, the organising board expected to collect feedback from participants on issues that will be discussed at the event, including diversifying and improving the quality of tourism products and services offered by travel firms and promoting and offering travel information to tourists and the community via smart tourism activities.

Besides this, the forum will feature discussions on ways to encourage private funding in tour services, particularly smart tourism applications and local supporting policies.

Also, participants will talk about measures to build a safe, tourist-friendly environment for tourists to the city and ways to apply advanced technology to develop smart tourism.

One day before the forum, participants will take part in a sightseeing tour to popular destinations in the city, including Lebadang Memory Space, and will enjoy a Hue royal court art performance.
