In a bid to introduce ethnic culture, adventure and eco-tourism attractions, Vietnam is promoting the “Northwestern Tourism Year” in 10 ASEAN member states. During the ASEAN Tourism Forum (ATF) in Singapore from Jan 16-20, Vietnam introduced information about its tourism, support policies and new tourism products in the northwest.
This year marks the 50th founding anniversary of ASEAN, as such member states are preparing new tourism marketing campaigns, which will be highlighted on the bloc’s website.
At the Travex exhibition 2017 as part of ATF, deputy head of Tourism Market Department under the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism Vu Nam said many partners are interested in Vietnamese tourism, and hoped that the government would support the industry.
Partners also hailed Vietnam’s visa waiver for tourists from several European countries, saying that helped bring more visitors to the country.
