HA NOI —Viet Nam will participate in an ASEAN Tourism Forum (ATF) in Chiang Mai, Thailand, from January 22-26 by hosting artistic performance to promote Viet Nam tourism.

This will help promote Viet Nam’s integration into ASEAN, helping define its role as an active member state of the eastern community.

The involvement also aims to promote Viet Nam as a safe, friendly and attractive destination to ASEAN countries and help prepare the country’s role in hosting ATF 2019.

The Chiang Mai forum is also an opportunity for localities and Viet Nam tourism agencies to work with international tourism agencies and organisations.

Viet Nam will join a series of activities, including a meeting of ASEAN national tourism organisations with China, Japan and South Korea, talking to ASEAN tourism ministers, and meeting with consultation teams from Russia and India.

The Viet Nam Department of Tourism will co-operate with localities and businesses to organise a Viet Nam tourism booth in a Travel Exchange (TRAVEX) trade fair. 

Viet Nam will also host a press briefing on its tourism and services as well as promoting the Ha Noi – Ninh Binh – Ha Long triangle. The event introduces Viet Nam as the host of the forum next year in Ha Long city. 

The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism will also host a Viet Nam Night for more than 700 people. Traditional arts performance and an ao dai catwalk show will be featured.

ATF is hosted on a rotational basis among the ASEAN countries. — VNS
