The Conference on Responsible Tourism Policy

On 14 November 2013, the Conference on Responsible Tourism Policy shall take place in Da Nang. This second Annual Conference is organized by the EU-funded Environmentally and Socially Responsible Tourism Capacity Development Programme under the guidance of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and Vietnam National Administration of Tourism.

Held over a full day on 14th November 2013 with the theme “Conference on Responsible Tourism Policy”, the conference will bring together some 200 delegates from across the Vietnam tourism industry private, public and NGO sectors to discuss the challenges of balancing the emergence of mass tourism in Vietnam while minimising its potential negative impacts and enhancing its positive impacts on the local social, environmental and economic situation.

The conference will help to encourage Government of Vietnam and tourism stakeholder to develop and implement the Framework for a Responsible Tourism Policy, which will help create a competitive advantage necessary for Vietnam’s tourism sector to mature and flourish and continue to contribute to broad-based socio-economic development well into the future.

Introductory presentations by experienced practitioners followed by moderated question & answer sessions will address these topics and give an updated picture of the pathway for a responsible tourism policy. Delegates will work together to develop a number of key responsible tourism issues for the policy development by conference-end.

Whereas in the conference sessions the responsible tourism topics are discussed on a more theoretical level, practical examples will be also presented to provide tangible responsible tourism experiences at the exhibition and during the Technical Visit on 15th November in Hoi An.
