Tourism authorities announced at a forum in Kon Tum Province of Vietnam’s Central Highlands region on Sunday the plan for tourism development in the Cambodia – Laos – Vietnam triangle area, aiming to welcome 3.3 million tourists by 2025.

The four-day event, titled 'Kon Tum Tourism – Potential and Prospects' and jointly held by the Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism and the People's Committee of Kon Tum, wrapped up on Sunday.

During its conclusion, Minister of Culture, Sports, and Tourism Nguyen Van Hung revealed the plan to develop tourism in the triangle area of Cambodia – Laos – Vietnam in 2021-25, with a vision toward 2030.

General director of the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) Nguyen Trung Khanh said that the plan’s goal is to attract 3.3 million visitors to the triangle area by 2025, achieving an average growth rate of 14 percent per year and doubling the number by 2030.

In order to realize that target, the participating parties will join hands to develop a synchronous system of technical facilities and amenities, tourism infrastructure, and qualified human resources.

Vietnam will preside over five main tasks: promoting the opening of international air routes to the area, connecting businesses and associations in the region to deeply participate in the global supply chain, linking tourist clusters and resorts, launching a chain of tourism events in the region, and organizing an annual forum on promotion of regional tourism.

In addition, the country will coordinate with Laos and Cambodia to implement their ten tourism promotion tasks.

The provinces participating in the plan include Ratanakiri, Stung Treng, Mondulkiri, and Kraté of Cambodia; Attapu, Salavan, Sekong, and Champasak of Laos; and Kon Tum, Gia Lai, Dak Lak, Dak Nong, and Binh Phuoc of Vietnam.

Among those, Kon Tum will introduce its own potential, such as Ngoc Linh Mountain in Ngoc Linh Nature Reserve, where there are many rare flora and fauna species including Ngoc Linh ginseng. 

The province also has a tri-border marker between Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia; and Mang Den ecotourism site – known as an ecological paradise with fresh air and cool weather all year round.
