Champasack province’s beautiful natural environment has the potential to attract hundreds of foreign visitors each year
As reported in Laotian Times, the Dong Hua Sao National Bio-Diversity Conservation Area and the Xe Pian National Bio-Diversity Conservation Area in Champasack provinces are planned to be developed as eco-tourism sites by the government, as part of efforts to promote sustainable tourism.
The plan was discussed in Champasack Province at a meeting between Vice President of the National Assembly, Sommad Pholsena, the Governor of Champasack province, Dr. Vilayvong Bouddakham, and a representative from the Embassy of the Republic of Korea to Laos.
Along with reviewing plans for the two sites, ways to best rehabilitate and develop the areas were also talked through.
Insights were given by The Republic of Korea, which will be helpful in the development of the two national parks.
Mr. Sommad said, “This meeting is an important step in allowing technical experts and others involved to voice their opinions on the protection of biodiversity in both national parks to the benefit of socio-economic development and generate revenue for the country and local communities, in addition to conservation efforts.”
“Sustainable tourism (eco-tourism), together with stable and sustainable forms of conservation, is important for every country in the world,” he added.
The development of these two parks is part of the National Green Growth Strategy, which aims to ensure that development remains sustainable.
Laos has used logging and exploitation of natural resources as means for economic growth. However, experts warn that the nation will suffer when such resources are depleted.
Champasack Province, known for its waterfalls, forests, and beautiful natural environment, has the potential to attract hundreds of foreign visitors each year.
