The signatories to the MoU are the Quang Nam Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism and Thailand’s Index Creative Village Public Limited Company and Vietnam Centre Limited Company.

Under the MoU, the two Thai companies will assist Quang Nam with activities in the Quang Nam Heritage Festival that includes the light and sound festival celebrating the Lunar New Year 2017, Hoi An ancient town’s Night Market festival, the Quang Nam Heritage Journey festival, the international Marathon race in Hoi An city. They also share Quang Nam with experience in developing agriculture in green tourism.

Apart from possessing the two world heritages - the ancient town of Hoi An and the My Son Sanctuary, Quang Nam boats the Cham Islands Biosphere Reserve and more than 60 national and provincial cultural heritages.

The province has advantages in developing tangible and intangible culture tourism products, maritime tourism, inland tourism, community-based tourism, and craft village tourism.

However, Quang Nam’s tourism potential has yet developed properly to raise the sector’s effectiveness and contribute to local social-economic development.

With the implementation of the project with the Thai partners, Quang Nam hopes that its potential and tourism attractiveness will be fully and widely introduced to international and local tourists.
