The ‘Indonesia Tourism Table Top in Vietnam 2017’ programme was held on April 5th in Hanoi by Indonesia’s Ministry of Tourism and the Indonesian Embassy. Tourism cooperation potential between Vietnam and Indonesia was highlighted during the program.
A representative from the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism was present at the event and lauded cooperation prospects between the two countries.
Indonesia’s Acting Ambassador to Vietnam Suryana Satradiredja said that Indonesia wants to cooperate with Vietnamese travel companies, management agencies and media to lure more tourists to the country.
Indonesia and Vietnam have huge opportunities to boost tourism cooperation as the numbers of vacationers are still low when compared with their respective populations, he added.
More than 10 Indonesian travel agents met with some 40 Vietnamese tour operators from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City to introduce tourism packages and tourist attractions and to seek cooperation opportunities.
On the occasion, the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism highlighted 10 major destinations called 10 “New Bali” tourist sites.
