The Viet Nam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) is
inviting hospitality enterprises involved in travel, hotel, transportation,
catering and entertainment to join a programme to promote Vietnamese tourism in
North America starting this September.
Hosted by the Viet Nam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT), the programme
will take place in Toronto, Canada on September 17; in Washington DC on
September 19; and in New York on September 21.
According to Dinh Ngoc Duc of the VNAT marketing department, the programme, part
of a master plan to promote Vietnamese tourism in 2018, will help boost the
number of tourists from this high-potential market.
He said that the events will also be an opportunity for Vietnamese tourist
enterprises and those from Canada and the US to meet directly, thus enhancing
their co-operation in the field.
Along with face-to-face meetings between hospitality companies and agencies, the
agenda will also include a programme presenting famous tourist destinations in
Viet Nam and new tourist products and services. New State policies in tourism
development will also be introduced to audiences.
All events will conclude with a feast of Vietnamese cuisine.
Last year, among 12.9 million international tourists visiting Viet Nam were more
than 138,000 visitors from Canada and 614,000 from the US. The figure from the
US includes a significant number of overseas Vietnamese.
