He expressed his great delight at the opportunity to discuss potential tourism collaborations between the two nations.

One of the objectives of the trip was to investigate and create cooperative opportunities between Vietnam and other countries in the areas of sports and tourism, Ambassador Alessandro stated.

“Golf is a prime example of how sport tourism can be a source of collaboration between two countries,” the diplomat asserted.

The esteemed ambassador joined a cohort of other influential speakers to delve into the potential opportunities and challenges of both organizing major golf events and developing golf movements in both Italy and Vietnam. With a deep understanding of the nuances and complexities of the country’s respective golf landscapes, the panel provided valuable insight and perspective on how best to move forward.

It is expected to be an exciting event that will bring people together and foster a strong bond between Italy and Vietnam.

Vietnam welcomed nearly three million international golfers in 2019, and the country is now executing a strategy to draw in even more golfers from the region, as well as from Australia and European nations including Italy, as per the presentation.

Regarding the potential for golf tourism development in Vietnam, Pham Thanh Tri, standing vice-president of the Vietnam Golf Tourism Association, expressed optimism that golf tourism could contribute up to US$10 billion to the country’s tourist industry annually in the coming years. He believes that the development of golf tourism in Vietnam is an opportunity that should not be overlooked.

Each foreigner visiting Vietnam for golfing spends, on average, two to three times more than a regular foreign visitor to the country, according to Tri’s estimation.

The World Golf Awards (WGA) has recognized Vietnam as the World’s Best Golf Destination for two consecutive years in 2019 and 2021, as well as the Asia’s Best Golf Destination for five consecutive years from 2017.

The World Golf Association (WGA) commented that Vietnam, with its 80 golf courses spread across the country, is “where the golf market is reviving” following the containment of the COVID-19 pandemic.
