CLV set to revitalise tourism

A joint meeting to revitalise the tourism sectors in Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam (CLV) was held on May 4, said Tourism Development and International Cooperation director-general Thong Rathasak.

He said the working group on Implementing the Tourism Development Plan for the Development Triangle Region (2020-2025) and Vision 2030 with Vietnam and Laos, wants to promote the tourism potential via exhibitions, videos, logos and brands, especially digital advertising.

The tourism development plan mainly focuses on 13 provinces in three countries. They consist of four provinces in Cambodia, five in Vietnam and four in Laos.

Rathasak suggested that the meeting be held twice a year to review the results before reporting to the ASEAN National Tourism Organisation.

He said key tourism standards must be developed for the triangle region in accordance with the ASEAN tourism standards.

The three countries must also organise a formalisation trip for the private sector to study and identify tourism potentials in the three countries’ provinces.

There should also be a caravan tour across the countries, which connects the southern tourism corridor and integrates tourism spots in the action plan.

Pacific Asia Travel Association Cambodia chapter chairman Thourn Sinan told The Post that the development plan for the triangle region was created “a long time ago”, but has yet to materialise.

However, if the project is rolled out in accordance with the state plan, it will stimulate the border economy by attracting more people, he said.

“This can in turn become a commercial zone and a new development region in the east pole, as well as to accelerate the economic process,” Sinan said.

Cambodia Association of Travel Agents adviser Ho Vandy said well-developed infrastructure in the triangle region would encourage more tourism movement in the three countries.

The infrastructure connection between the three countries will make it easier for local and foreign tourists to visit the area.

In addition, as the number of tourists increase, the sale of agricultural products in the area will rise accordingly, due to the condition in the triangle region which is favourable to the growing of vegetables and fruits, he told The Post.
