The conference has received many valuable comments and discussions from scientists, researchers, and government offices on the paper findings which are related to theories, empirical issues and development experiences in provinces, countries, and regions. For instance, exploration of natural and cultural heritage values, conservation of sea resources, etc…or empirical summaries, theories of tourism development from the viewpoint of a single sector, multi-sectors, and then focusing on the tourism science and sustainable development approach. In many cases these discussions have practical implications for the planning and implementation .

It can be affirmed that the development of sustainable tourism and environmentally friendly tourism in the direction of humanity is an inevitable approach. Discussions during conference have contributed to changing the ways in which each stakeholder participates in developing and implementing the tourism product to identify, change or mitigate the negative impacts of tourism, and on the ways to develop sustainable tourism. Comments discussed at the conference are very useful and proposals are highly feasible. On the second day of the series of conference events, delegates made a field trip to the World Biosphere Reserve of Cham Islands as a practical illustration of approaches to sustainable tourism and to provide an opportunity to discuss research opportunities.

After two days of working in an open atmosphere, exchanging views with frankness in the spirit of science and high respect for the issues facing tourism today, the conference closed with the expected success, promising more research cooperation and projects with relevance to Vietnam and the AESAN region among the scientists that attended from the seven countries. The participants expressed appreciation of the opportunity afforded by the conference and the warm hospitality demonstrated by their Vietnamese hosts.
