Vice Director of the municipal Department of Tourism Tan Van Vuong said the trend of digital transformation has brought an opportunity for the city’s tourism sector to get closer to key and potential markets; and opened up new communications and promotion methods via cooperation with businesses in the field of communications and digital technology.

This will contribute to saving the State budget and increasing the effectiveness of local tourism destination promotions, he noted.

At the event, the centre and a series of companies signed cooperation pacts to showcase Da Nang’s tourism on digital space and TV channels for 2022-2024, aiming at both domestic and foreign visitors.
