Vietnam looks to boost tourism cooperation with RoK's Jeollabuk-do provinceThe Republic of Korea (RoK) is one of the favourite destinations of Vietnamese tourists, especially young people, Deputy General Director of the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) Ha Van Sieu has said. Vietnam is also a market that Jeollabuk-do is targeting, because the province's tourism promotion website has a Vietnamese version, which is friendly for Vietnamese users. Regarding local capital, 13 out of 14 provinces in the region (all except Hoà Bình) have allocated VNĐ2 trillion of local budget capital to implement the three programmes. As of January 31, 13 of 14 provinces have completed the capital allocation, while Tuyên Quang urgently completes the procedures. According to Tran Anh Minh, director of the department, the festival aims to preserve and promote the province’s national intangible cultural heritage and tasty vegetarian food.
