Travel stimulus boost to help resume COVID-19-battered tourism industry

Khanh Hoa People’s Committee has just issued a document to kickstart and resume the local COVID-19-battered tourism industry. Accordingly, Khanh Hoa People’s Committee assigned the Department of Tourism to urgently work with Nha Trang - Khanh Hoa Tourism Association and travel, hotel and restaurant businesses in the province to implement tourism promotion plans, helping to accelerate tourism recovery during the last months of the year. The Department of Tourism was required to report results and provide consultancy within its competence to the provincial People’s Committee before October 31.
