Skift Take

As tourism continues to grow in Southeast Asia, Vietnam is just one of several nations looking for untapped tourism markets to increase awareness of its travel opportunites and generate greater revenue.

Vietnam plans to launch a tourism promotion campaign in the Arab countries, particularly in the GCC states, and ease visa procedures to attract more visitors, a top Vietnamese official has said.

“We are willing to promote tourism and investment in the Gulf region in particular and the whole Arab world in general, “ Vietnam minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Hoang Tuan Anh told Gulf Times on the sidelines of a press conference in Ho Chi Minh City recently.

“The number of GCC visitors  to this region is still very limited and intensive promotion efforts have to be exerted to increase their numbers,” he said.
