Viet Nam, Laos, Cambodia to boost tourism at borders

Phnom Penh — Viet Nam, Laos and Cambodia have agreed to boost tourism development projects in 10 provinces in the three countries’ economic development triangle.

At a recent meeting in Phnom Penh, the tourism ministries of the three countries also agreed to conduct joint surveys on tourism development potential and foreign direct investment attraction capacities in the provinces of Ratanakiri, Mondolkiri and Stung Treng of Cambodia; Atopu, Sekong and Saravan of Laos; and Gia Lai, Kon Tum, Dac Lak and Dak Nong of Viet Nam.

The tripartite agreement also outlined that ministries would propose that their Governments approve projects related to immigration control and tourism infrastructure construction in those provinces.

The Cambodian tourism ministry would submit to its Government a project to build a road segment running from Krache Province to Viet Nam’s border areas via Mondolkiri Province.

A book of 148 pages introducing famous tourist sites at the border triangle of Viet Nam, Laos and Cambodia will also be published in the coming time, according to the agreement. — VNS
