An association with green tourism
There are nearly 100 stands at the first regional traditional craft festival in Quang Nam.
They are not only from the host province- Quang Nam but from others such as Ha Noi, Thanh Hoa, Dak Lak, and Dong Thap.
One of the goals of the event is introducing products from craft villages with green tourism to the public in order to promote tourism recovery and development.
Some special highlight programmes at the festival are the launch of Quang Nam smart tourism system, the signing ceremony of a cooperation agreement on the development of traditional craft villages, OCOP products, and typical rural industrial products among localities, and launching the Quang Nam products website with approximately 500 products.
It is well-known that Quang Nam has had several policies for the development of craft villages, especially based on electronic trading.
The linkage between traditional craft villages associated with green tourism development will become a great opportunity to develop products and expand the market, towards sustainable growth.
