UN helps Hoi An turn into ecological city
08-17-2011, 10:53 pm

The United Nations and the UN Industrial Development Organisation will provide Hoi An city in central Quang Nam province with technical assistance to help turn the locality into an ecological one under a project that began on Aug. 16.

Under the project, the Hoi An municipal People’s Committee will encourage green industrial activities at small and medium-sized enterprises, especially those operating in tourism, handicraft and relevant fields, while stepping up the provision of energy and environmental services based on the international “eco-city” model.

Outcomes and experiences of the project will be shared with other cities and provinces nationwide.

In the first seven months of this year, the world heritage site of Hoi An received more than 750,000 tourists, fulfilling 75 percent of its set target for the whole year.

The number of visitors choosing the city as a destination for their long stay also increases more than 20 percent compared with previous years.

The results are attributable to the close coordination between the city’s tourism sector and travel companies to welcome both domestic and foreign arrivals with best conditions./.
