DA NANG (VNS)— The central city has asked Thailand for further co-operation and investment in tourism and trade as well as launching a direct flight route from Bangkok to Da Nang.
In a meeting yesterday with the Thai General Consul in HCM City, Panpimon Suwannapongse, vice chairman of the Da Nang People's committee Phung Tan Viet, stated that last year import-export turnover between Thailand and Da Nang reached US$30.2 million, of which $28.5 million were exports from Thailand.
Thailand has only had one investment project in Da Nang so far. The total value of the project was $10,000.
The central city attracts around 700 tourists from Thailand annually.
