In a conference held in Hanoi, the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) summarized the work in 2020 and the implementation of its tasks in 2021. For the new year, the country that hosts Ha Long Bay -one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature- strives to welcome 19 million tourists.
According to the authorities, the main objective is developing domestic tourism with the guideline “Connection, action and development”. Tourism stimulation programmes such as stimulation programmes “Vietnamese people travel Vietnam” and “Safe and attractive Vietnamese tourism” will continue attracting local tourists and helping minimize damage to the tourism industry.
However, the country will also aim to reposition itself in international tourism markets while improving the quality of tourists and developing suitable products for the market.
