It will popularise sustainable tourism models to SMEs, small hotels, homestay services suppliers so that they can expand the presence of sustainable tourism models and products to newly-emerging destinations and those which are less attractive to tourists.

The programme comprises of sub-projects that are built in conformity with the private sector’s demand as well as the cooperation of seven training establishments in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang city, Can Tho city, and Ninh Binh, Quang Nam and An Giang provinces.

SSTP is carried out by a joint venture of consulting companies, including the Germany-based GFA Consulting Group, Vietnam’s Asian Management and Development Institute (AMDI), and Switzerland’s International Management Institute (IMI). It has received support from Hilton Hotels, Victoria Hotels, and Exotissimo Tour Operator.
