HẢI PHÒNG — Hải Phòng has attracted 22 investment projects in the tourism sector, totaling over VNĐ120,000 billion (US$4.8 billion) between 2016 and 2023.

Hải Phòng has emerged as a prime destination for investment, with the active participation of major corporations such as Vingroup, Sungroup, Flamingo, BRG, and Geleximco.

Renowned for its long-standing port and remarkable tourist areas like Đồ Sơn and Cát Bà, Hải Phòng boasts the Cát Bà archipelago, which has received national and international recognition, including UNESCO's acknowledgment as a world natural heritage site.

Significant growth in infrastructure has been observed through investment and the implementation of numerous large-scale projects. The city has made efficient use of available resources, prioritising the development of synchronised infrastructure projects, particularly in transportation systems, airports, ports, and new urban areas tailored for tourism.

Hải Phòng's strategic focus is to develop island tourism as its core offering. Simultaneously, the city is diversifying its tourism industry by promoting sports tourism, resorts, community-based tourism, rural agricultural tourism, cultural tourism, and spiritual tourism.

Golf sports tourism, in particular, thrives in Hải Phòng and serves as a key strength. The city currently boasts four standard golf courses - Sông Giá, Đồ Sơn, Vũ Yên, and Dragon Hill - which attract affluent tourists year-round.

Cát Bà island tourism is undergoing new development, combining cruise tourism on Lan Hạ Bay with community tourism in Việt Hải Village, thereby creating an attractive tourism chain that entices a significant number of visitors.

Out of the 22 investment projects in the tourism industry, five have been completed, ten are currently underway, while some are either pending implementation or facing delays. To address challenges faced by investment projects in the city's tourism sector, the Hải Phòng Department of Tourism recently organised a workshop in collaboration with the Departments of Tourism from Hà Nội, Ninh Bình, and Quảng Ninh, as well as industry experts and businesses.

During the seminar, participants discussed three key issues pertaining to the current state of tourism investment, the advantages and limitations of attracting investment in tourism development, existing policies and laws governing investment attraction in the tourism sector, and the legal obstacles that need to be addressed. Furthermore, attendees from other provinces and cities shared their experiences and insights on successfully attracting and implementing tourism investment projects in their respective localities.
