According to Mr Vo Van Van- Chairman of Quang Nam Tourism Association, the tourism connection between Quang Nam and Quang Ngai is very necessary for the tourism development of Quang Nam southern region. “I think that beside  tourists exchange, we should cooperate in human resource training, experiences exchanges in the state management for tourism, travel and tour agencies, professional skill cultivation for tourism employees. Especially, the link of websites of two localities’ Departements of Culture, Sports and Tourism, Tourism Associations, Centers for tourism promotion needs to be set up to publish information about the local projects, preferential policies on calling for investment”, Mr Van suggested.
