The Da Nang People’s Committee Vice Chairman, Mr Phung Tan Viet, last Friday chaired a meeting to review the first 6-month’s implementation of Decision No 55/2012/QD-UBND which concerns Da Nang’s support policies for the development of the local tourism souvenirs industry.

A wide range of tourism souvenirs featuring local landmarks were displayed at the event.  They included handicrafts depicting the Dragon Bridge, key-rings engraved with an image of the Han River Bridge, painted gemstones, and perfumed wooden jewellery boxes.


Nearly 100 products on display were given certificates in recognition of their initial success and their contribution to the development of the local tourism souvenirs industry.  In addition, some products were evaluated highly for their development potential.  They included night lamps and bracelets made of snail shells from the Dai Duong (Ocean) Gifts company, key-rings engraved with an image of the Han River Bridge and the Marble Mountains from the Pho Hoi Company, the natural stone handicrafts of Truc Xanh (Green Small Bamboo) Company, and Quang Huy Company’s products made from wood, rattan and bamboo depicting the Dragon Bridge.

The 8 local enterprises which have recently been given permission to make tourism souvenirs for sale in 2013, along with others in the future, will soon enjoy the city's preferential policies to develop their businesses.  Specifically, they will have the opportunity to access loans at low interest rates, business premises, and other benefits.

The city’s relevant agencies will work closely with the local tourism association and hotels to advertise locally-made tourism souvenirs to visitors.
