The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism will consider promoting the Trang An eco-tourism complex in the northern province of Ninh Binh on the well-known global TV network CNN in the coming time.
Minister Hoang Tuan Anh unveiled the plan at a reception in Hanoi on April for Shamila Gopalan, Account Director of the Cable News Network in Southeast Asia.
Anh appreciated CNN for having broadcast programmes introducing Vietnam’s cultural and tourism events to the wider world over the years, and hoped for further cooperation with the network in the near future.
Gopalan said CNN is willing to cooperate with the Vietnamese ministry in raising the country’s profile to the world.
Minister Anh invited CNN reporters to cover ceremonies to recognising Ha Long Bay as one of the seven new Natural Wonders of the World, scheduled for April 27 in Hanoi and May 1 in Ha Long City.
Located in Quang Ninh province, Ha Long Bay has been twice recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its natural beauty and geology.
Gopalan said CNN reporters will not be able to take part in the event as it is drawing near, but requested the Vietnamese side shoot and send clips to CNN for broadcasting.
