In his speech, Minister Nguyen Ngoc Thien spoke highly of the UNWTO’s significant support to the development of Vietnam’s tourism in recent years. He also proposed the UNWTO to enhance its assistances and cooperation with Vietnam’s tourism in the coming time. In 2016, Vietnam’s tourism achieved remarkable results, notably attracting more than 10 million international arrivals. Vietnam has determined to develop tourism into the country’s spearhead economic sector.
