Mayors of cities in the expanded Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS) will meet in HCM City to discuss tourism co-operation, product enhancement, and promotion of youth tourism.
The organisers of the International Travel Expo 2012 (ITE 2012) said city leaders from Phnom Penh (Cambodia), Vientiane (Laos), Yangon (Myanmar), Kunming (China), Bangkok (Thailand), HCM City (Viet Nam), and Jeju and Busan (South Korea) would attend a conference from September 12 to 14 during the expo.
They will discuss ways to actualise the joint statement on tourism co-operation signed by the tourism ministers of Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, and Viet Nam at the ITE last year.
Each city will have 10 travel firms at the event.
Some 200 tour operators from 30 nations and territories are expected to attend this year's event, to be called Four Nations – One Destination.-VNS
