At the signing ceremony, VNPT introduced several smart tourism solutions and emphasized the important role of IT application to building high-quality tourism to better serve tourists and contributing to local sustainable economic development.

Under the agreement, VNPT Ninh Binh will provide tourists with smart applications on cellphones to provide them with access to tourism information and free Wi-Fi at tourist destinations, build a tourism portal and digitize provincial tourism’s data.

Last year, the group signed cooperation agreements with the Vietn Nam National Tourism Administration and Saigontourist to boost IT application in the tourism sector, partly creating modern tourism products to serve demands of both domestic and international tourists.

Ninh Binh welcomed over 7 million visitors in 2017, an increase of 9 per cent against 2016 and enjoying a sharp increase in the number of foreigners. The province’s tourism sector achieved over VND 2,400 billion in turnover, up by 41 per cent compared to that in 2016.

This year, the province targets to receive 7.2 million visitors, bringing a turnover of some VND 2,700 billion to the province.
