Tourism sector expects to revive operations soon

The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism is looking forward to quickly resume operations of the tourism industry which was battered by the COVID-19 pandemic.



The Vietnam National Administration of Tourism was asked to work with localities to upgrade tourism products with the goal that each province and city have a unique one as well as connecting tourism products to create highlights for traveling activities.

It was necessary for localities that COVID-19 have been put under control,  connect with tourism associations and businesses to organise promotion and investment forums and conferences to revive tourism.

The industry would prepare to gradually expand to other destinations throughout the country, continuing to deploy communications activities and stimulate tourism demand based on inheriting the “Vietnamese people travel in Vietnam” and “Vietnam tourism – a safe and attractive destination” programmes.

In the first eight months of this year, the number of domestic visitors reached 31.2 million, falling by 5.5 percent year-on-year. The gross revenue of domestic tourism hit 6 billion USD./.
