HÀ NỘI —Việt Nam will participate in an ASEAN Tourism Forum (ATF) in Chiang Mai, Thailand, from January 22-26 by hosting artistic performance to promote Việt Nam tourism.
This will help promote Việt Nam’s integration into ASEAN, helping define its role as an active member state of the eastern community.
The involvement also aims to promote Việt Nam as a safe, friendly and attractive destination to ASEAN countries and help prepare the country’s role in hosting ATF 2019.
The Chiang Mai forum is also an opportunity for localities and Việt Nam tourism agencies to work with international tourism agencies and organisations.
Việt Nam will join a series of activities, including a meeting of ASEAN national tourism organisations with China, Japan and South Korea, talking to ASEAN tourism ministers, and meeting with consultation teams from Russia and India.
The Việt Nam Department of Tourism will co-operate with localities and businesses to organise a Việt Nam tourism booth in a Travel Exchange (TRAVEX) trade fair.
Việt Nam will also host a press briefing on its tourism and services as well as promoting the Hà Nội – Ninh Bình – Hạ Long triangle. The event introduces Việt Nam as the host of the forum next year in Hạ Long city.
The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism will also host a Việt Nam Night for more than 700 people. Traditional arts performance and an áo dài catwalk show will be featured.
ATF is hosted on a rotational basis among the ASEAN countries. — VNS
