Program developing tourism capacity extended

VGP - The PM has agreed to extend the duration of the Environmentally and Socially Responsible Tourism Capacity Development Program funded by the European Union (EU) to November 10, 2016.

The PM authorized leaders of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism (MCST) to sign Appendix 1 of the Finance Agreement between the Vietnamese Government and the EU on the extension.

The MCST was tasked to implement the program on schedule effectively as committed with the donor.
