Under the plan, Hanoi would welcome 35-39 million tourists, including 8-9 million international tourists by 2025. Total revenue from tourism is expected at VND151 trillion (US$6.5 billion).
By 2030, the city expects to receive 48-49 million tourists, including 13-14 million international guests, and revenue from tourism is projected to reach VND270-300 trillion (US$11.6-12.9 billion).
Tourism in the city will become a modern and professional service industry with high quality, efficiency and competitiveness; actively grasp development trends and deepen international integration; apply advanced and modern science and technology. It aims at high-quality human resources as an advance factor for tourism development. The sector will also have a strong spillover effect to promote the development of related industries.
To complete the above goals, the city's People Committee has outlined six solutions which are: innovation in the mindset on tourism development; investment in infrastructure, technical infrastructure, mobilization of all resources for tourism development; development of high-quality products in the fields of travel, transportation, gastronomy; improvement of the quality of tourist destinations in the city as well as the regulatory capacity of state agencies.
In February, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc approved a tourism development strategy by 2030, under which Vietnam targets to make tourism a spearhead and sustainable economic sector and among the best competitive tourism markets.
