HÀ NỘI — Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc on Thursday received international investors in the field of tourism, who were in Hà Nội to attend the Travel and Tourism Summit 2018.

Welcoming the investors to Việt Nam, the Government leader said Việt Nam boasts great potential for tourism, considering it a spearhead economic sector.

However, he noted despite good growth, Việt Nam’s tourism development is yet to match potential, with the sector at a smaller scale than in regional countries. He also highlighted limitations such as unsustainable tourism development and weak management capacity.

Speaking at the event, the investors appreciated Việt Nam’s tourism potential and suggested the country expand the list of countries eligible for visa waivers, boost innovation and raise public awareness of the importance of providing tourism services.

Agreeing with the guests, the PM mentioned several measures to boost Việt Nam’s tourism such as a continued open visa policy and the improvement of aviation infrastructure.

He emphasised the need to increase tourism promotion, train human resources and develop accommodation and entertainment facilities. — VNS
