Why Da Nang?

Located on the East Sea and acting as the gateway of the East-West Economic Corridor (EWEC), Da Nang has the potential to become an integral part of the global supply and production chain.

Da Nang is also the focal point of three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Hue Citadel, Hoi An Ancient Town and My Son Sanctuary. Internationally, Da Nang is a vital gateway to sea for the Central Highland region and a corridor connecting Vietnam with Laos, Thailand and Myanmar with the ending point at Tien Sa Port. Located on one of the key sea routes and international air networks, Da Nang is undoubtedly a core geographical hub for sustainable development.
