According to Director of the Quang Nam Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism Dinh Hai, the festival was successful in the cultural cooperation and exchanges, local tourism promotion, Quang Nam’s and other localities’ cultural heritages preservation... Especially, tourists to Quang Nam dramatically increased on this occasion.

The festival happened from 7 to 14 June with the participation of the art and sports delegations from 33 countries and territories and 35 Vietnamese provinces and cities. Its activities spread from the coastal to mountainous areas, attracting over 7 hundred thousand visitors.

Despite a large number of experts, athletes, artists, artisans and visitors coming to festive areas in a short time, everything from reception to services was well-controlled. It was really impressive to everyone to the festival, contributing to the promotion of Quang Nam images and tourism.

Chairman Dinh Van Thu highly appreciated the direction and coordination of the sectors, branches and enterprises for the overall success of the festival, especially the mobilization of social resources where businessmen played very important roles. Beside the achievements, there were still some shortcomings, namely in the areas of the first organization of the events. He asked to pay more attention and went on preparing for the coming important events, the 70th anniversary of the Martyrs’ and Wounded Soldiers’ Day (July 27th) and APEC 2017 in November.
