In the first ten months, the total number of foreign arrivals to Vietnam reached almost 10 million, which is only 69 percent of what was recorded in the same period last year. The number of domestic visitors reached 99 million.

In order for tourism to become a key economic sector and to achieve the goal of receiving at least 35 million foreign tourists and 120 million domestic tourists by 2025, and 50 million foreign tourists and 160 million domestic tourists by 2030, Vietnam’s tourism sector needs a real transformation of mentality and access. This includes taking creative, revolutionary, coordinated and effective measures while adopting a strategy of close ties, harmonious coordination and comprehensive cooperation, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh said in his speech.

He asked participants to clarify the content and requirements related to tourism development mechanisms and policies, resources and workforce training for the sector, tourism management from the national level to units and local enterprises, and coordinate efforts between ministries, agencies, units and enterprises.

The prime minister asked the delegates to identify opportunities and challenges, study international experiences and propose effective measures to create favorable conditions for rapid and sustainable development of Vietnamese tourism.

Participants discussed the role of localities and units in managing and promoting destinations, efforts to attract international tourists via air, land and sea routes, the role of Vietnamese diplomatic missions abroad in these efforts, and measures to increase tourism spending through shopping.
