HCMC – The authority of Khanh Hoa Province has taken steps to offer support to tourism businesses that have been hit by the coronavirus pandemic.

Nha Trang-Khanh Hoa Tourism Association was asked to report pandemic-related obstacles faced by tourism operators and suggest solutions to the provincial government yesterday, May 6, for consideration, reported Nguoi Lao Dong newspaper, quoting Pham Minh Nhut, vice chairman of the association.

The provincial government has approved a proposal to exempt beach rentals for tourism operators that have set up umbrellas and chairs on beaches along Tran Phu and Pham Van Dong streets from March 1 to June 30 to serve tourists.

Also, lessees who run parking lots along the coastal road of Tran Phu in Nha Trang City will enjoy a rental exemption in April and a 40% reduction in March, May and June.

Besides this, enterprises and organizations affected by Covid-19, which is linked to the new coronavirus, have been told to submit applications to extend debt payment deadlines and enjoy lending rate cuts to the State Bank of Vietnam’s Khanh Hoa Branch for consideration.

As of April 30, Vietnam Bank for Social Policies’ Ninh Hoa Town transaction office in the province had adjusted the terms of debts and extended payment deadlines for 241 borrowers. The bank offered loans worth over VND55 billion to over 2,000 customers.

The provincial Tourism Department has also adopted many measures to restore the tourism sector, including making preparations to launch a tourism promotion program that will run from June to December this year.

Due to the spread of Covid-19, the central coastal province in the first quarter of the year catered to a mere 644,000 tourist arrivals, equivalent to some 41% of the year-ago figure. With the sharp decline in tourist arrivals, the province’s tourism sector encountered losses of some VND5.4 trillion, according to Nguyen Thi Le Thanh, deputy director of the Tourism Department.
