The Deputy Director General of the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) Nguyen Thi Thanh Huong said that Vietnam Tourism has seen a growth rate of 20-30%, as well as new tourism products introduced by Vietnamese travel agencies at this year’s event.
Vietnamese travel businesses attending the 2018 WTM said that their stalls attracted large number of visitors, and that they were happy about the results of their meetings with customers and partners during the three-day event.
Huong attributed the success of the travel agencies for their constant effort in offering new services and products with high quality. She added that visa exemption for travelers from 24 countries and the grant of e-visa also had positive impacts on tourism development of Vietnam.
