Bangkok, July 28, 2015

INDIA and Russia have been highlighted as the two markets with the strongest growth potential for Vietnam’s tourism sector, according to Hoang Tuan Anh, Vietnam’s culture, sports and tourism minister.


The ministry had organised an Indian fam trip to Vietnam and welcomed a Bollywood film crew. Vietnam also had a presence at the GES Trade and Services Exhibition and will be attending the upcoming PATA Travel Mart 2015 in India.


As for Russia, Vietnam will continue to participate in the main international travel marts such as MITT and Intour Market, as well as organise familiarisation and press trips.


Danang has also been identified as an emerging destination in Vietnam and policies have been implemented to boost infrastructural development, construction of high-end luxury hotels and the cultivation of new tourism products.


“Vietnam has been strengthening investment attraction into tourism development with a variety of projects related to infrastructures, facilities, human resources and sustainable tourism,” said Hoang.


“All projects are strictly oriented to sustainability development and community benefits,” he added.


The Vietnamese government is also taking action to redress the country’s strict visa rules. Visa exemptions currently apply to 13 countries, including Russia, Belarus, Japan, South Korea, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Holland, Germany, France, the UK, Italy and Spain, as well as for all ASEAN countries.


It has also implemented a visa exemption for international tourists to Phu Quoc Island for a period of 30 days.
