In succession to the training courses in 2013 and 2014, the training course in 2015 remained to aim at capacity building in management for tourism administrators throughout the country, addressing the long-term objective of human resource development in tourism sector. As planned, the training course will last from 1 to 28 June 2015 in the Taylor’s University, Malaysia.
The training course concentrates on responsible tourism management covering five topics: responsible/sustainable tourism (protection of the environment/cultural heritages), spacial/regional tourism planning, management of tourism quality and services, product development and event management. This is regarded as a good opportunity for Vietnamese officials to access to and interact in an international-scale training environment, as well as to experience current and future tendencies of the tourism industry in ASEAN region.
The 20 tourism administrators attending this training course have been carefully selected, conforming to procedures and strict requirements for work experience, age, qualifications and English competency.
Through the three short training courses on responsible tourism management, the ESRT Programme contributed to the capacity strengthening for 60 state management officials on tourism in local areas. With the knowledge and actual lessons learnt from the foreign country, these officials are regarded as active players who will contribute to leverage the development of local tourism industry in the future.
