Speaking during a visit to Da Nang on July 13, the Prime Minister appreciated the contribution made by private businesses to Viet Nam's economic development. He said he was impressed by the tourism business of the SUN Group in the Ba Na Hills resort and would introduce the resort to the Lao people.
SUN Group CEO Dang Minh Truong said the Viet Nam National Administration of Tourism had recently named the resort one of the best tourist destinations in Viet Nam. The resort's cable car No. 3 has been listed by the British newspaper The Telegraph among the 11 most impressive cable cars in the world.
Each year, the resort attracts some 1.5 million tourists, which makes a significant contribution to the development of Da Nang City.
