HÀ NỘI — Taiwan targets to receive 1.5 million visitors from Việt Nam in 2019, Chen Jin-ling, Deputy Representative of Taipei Economic and Cultural Office, said during a tourism promotion event on Wednesday in Hà Nội.
Many travel agents and representatives of destinations in Taiwan attended the event with the aim of introducing the attractions of Taiwanese tourism to Vietnamese enterprises.
“Việt Nam and Taiwan have many similarities in beautiful landscapes, friendly people and diversified culture. We expect that we can work together to attract more Vietnamese tourists to Taiwan.”
“We will join hands with Vietnamese authorities to provide favoured visa policy to create good conditions for Vietnamese tourists to Taiwan,” said Chen.
Derek Zhou, director of HCM City Office of Taiwan, said the establishment of HCM City Office early this month showed the special attention to promoting tourism in Việt Nam.
“Việt Nam is always an important market for Taiwan,” he said.
“We see the rapid growth in the number of Vietnamese tourists to Taiwan. In 2012, we received only 95,000 tourists. Last year, the number increased to one million visitors.” — VNS
