However, due to limited funding and many difficulties in socialization and popularization of tourism promotion, the popularization capacity could not expand to new and potential markets yet.

The enterprises said that in 2019, to be more effective at the promotion work, the tourism industry needs to diversify its form of promotion, especially taking advantage of the 4.0 revolution, bringing Hue's image closer to visitors; enhancing the promotion in Hue's key and traditional markets, especially in Western Europe and Northeast Asia; continuing to invite famtrip and presstrip delegations to Hue to survey and create opportunities for tourism businesses to cooperate with each other. In addition, Hue tourism industry needs to coordinate with Quang Nam and Da Nang to increase resources and to arranges trips to promote and popularize tourism more effectively.
