|HANOI， Aug. 9 (Xinhua) -- Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc on Tuesday urged relevant agencies to seek for measures to bring tourism a key sector in the country's economy， contributing some ten percent to the national Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
According to statistics by Vietnam's Ministry of Culture， Sports and Tourism， in 2015， tourism contributed some 6.6 percent to the national GDP， creating 2.25 million jobs.
Last year， Vietnam welcomed nearly eight million foreign visitors， an increase of 0.9 percent year-on-year. However， participants at a national conference on tourism held Tuesday in Vietnam's central Quang Nam province said the growth of Vietnamese tourism sector does not commensurate with the country's potentials and advantages.
At the conference， the Vietnamese cabinet chief requested agencies to solve specific problems in Vietnamese tourism including price cheating， sanitation， food safety， security for tourists， and unprofessional attitude of tourism staff.
The low rate of returned tourists is also among problems that Vietnamese tourism sector has to deal with， the website of Vietnamese government cited Phuc as saying.
According to a survey conducted by Vietnam National Administration of Tourism in October and November of 2014， targeting foreigners and Vietnamese settling abroad， the proportion of international visitors to Vietnam for the first time accounted for about 67 percent of visitors， for the second time was 18.1 percent， third time was 5.77 percent， and over three times was 9.11 percent.
A total of 13，980 questionnaires in six different languages were delivered at random to international tourists to Vietnam after finishing their trips， at seven international border gates including three airports， two land and two sea border gates. Questionnaires were also sent to 1，000 international tour operators and 63 Departments of Culture， Sports and Tourism across the nation.
Earlier in 2015， Vietnamese Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam has revealed six weaknesses of the country's tourism industry， or six things foreign tourists are "very scared of" while they are in Vietnam， including unsafe traffic， dirty food and environment， thieves， beggars， and overcharging by vendors.
Vietnam has won global praise for beautiful scenes and nice people， but due to the problems， Vietnam has been losing tourists to nearby countries like Thailand， Malaysia and Singapore， which received several times more tourists every year， Dam told local media.
Vietnam earned nearly 338 trillion Vietnamese dong (over 15 billion U.S. dollars) from tourism in 2015. The country set a target to welcome at least 8.5 million foreign visitors in 2016 with 370 trillion Vietnamese dong (nearly 16.6 billion U.S. dollars) of tourism revenue.
SYDNEY Miguel Cabrera Womens Jersey , June 19 (Xinhua) -- An Australian professor has uncovered the genetic differences between Chinese and Western dementia patients that could revolutionise treatment for sufferers.
Very little is known about frontotemporal dementia (FTD), a type of brain disease which can take a huge toll on a person's life by altering their personality, intellectual capabilities and behaviour, however Michael Fulmer Womens Jersey , Professor Huang Yue is hopeful that her research will shed some light on the devastating disease.
There is no cure for FTD, which can even impact those under 50 years of age, and so little is known about its causes that it is often misdiagnosed by doctors, according to Huang.
The University of New South Wales researcher found the genetic makeup of Chinese patients with FTD differs from that of western patients Lance Parrish Womens Jersey , a breakthrough which could help doctors develop a cure for the condition.
"There are some genetic mutations that the Chinese patients had that western people don't, and we can use this knowledge to better the therapy for our patients," Huang told Xinhua recently.
"It's about being more precise and knowing our patients better. When we know what is causing this disease in the first place, we can get a more precise diagnosis Kirk Gibson Womens Jersey , and a more precise treatment."
Understanding how certain populations differ can "enhance understanding about the features of the disease," according to Huang, as it can help doctors understand how gene therapy could be used as a viable treatment option.
"Genetic mutations may occur in one population but not another," Huang said Justin Upton Womens Jersey , "Genetic studies about different populations will enhance our understanding about the diverse clinical features of a disease.
With around 10 million new cases each year, World Health Organization estimates around 47 million people suffer from dementia and with no treatment currently in sight.
Researchers like Huang hope to ease the burden, with knowledge that can be used to further early diagnosis and make treatment more suitable for a patient's needs.
Though FTD patients make up around 15 percent of the world's total dementia sufferers, Huang told Xinhua that many suffer in silence Jose Iglesias Womens Jersey , and the best way to help these patients is transition from the goal of fighting symptoms to that of finding a cure.
"In the future, we need to focus on molecular targeting, that means, using recent developments in science to edit the gene itself. We can intervene early and stop the disease occurring entirely."
Early identification should be a big focus for scientists as they continue to work towards a cure Jordan Zimmermann Womens Jersey , Huang explained, so patients can have a better understanding of the disease which is often mistaken for depression.
"By checking people's genes, we can identify them early, and this allows people to plan their lives properly. It also gives them the option of seeking out clinical trials for people with specific types of gene mutations James McCann Womens Jersey ," Huang said.
"That way, people have proper guidance and understand their condition. It gives them an understanding of their own life."
