On July 1, 2022, in Nghe An, the People's Committee of Ho Chi Minh City, in coordination with the People's Committee of Hanoi and the People's Committees of Nghe An, Ha Tinh, Ninh Binh, Quang Binh, Quang Tri, and Thanh Hoa will host the Forum on development of tourism linkages among Ha Noi, Ho Chi Minh City and Vietnam North Central Coast 2022. This year’s theme is “Convergence of elites - Enhanced destination experience”.
This forum is part of the regional linkage proposed by the People's Committee of Ho Chi Minh City, to connect tourism growth among the North Central Coast with Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, and to highlight the potential and advantages of each province’s tourism resources. Additionally, this will lay the groundwork for the establishment and utilization of inter-provincial and inter-regional tourism products; boost market demand, and affirm the distinctiveness and identity of Vietnam's tourism to international partners.
This is also Ho Chi Minh City’s sixth tourism initiative, following the linkage with 13 provinces of the Mekong Delta, the Southeast region, the North West region, the Northeast region, and most recently, with the central key economic region, in order to connect provinces and regions across the nation. These connections are crucial for the growth of Vietnam's tourism industry, especially during the recovery after the COVDI -19 pandemic’s two-year disruption.
This forum is taking place at Saigon Kim Lien Hotel, Vinh City, Nghe An with the participation of more than 500 people, from the Government, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, along with other departments and units; Leader of Tourism Advisory Council, Vietnam Tourism Association; Department of Tourism/Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, Investment Promotion, Trade and Tourism Center, Tourism Association and tourism enterprises from different provinces and cities; representatives from travel and aviation corporations; representatives of the European Business Association (Eurocham) and other foreign agencies and organizations in Hanoi and in Ho Chi Minh City; press, media agency…
At the forum, delegates will primarily focus on exchanging and discussing solutions to advance and improve the effectiveness of the collaboration for sustainable tourism development and domestic tourism growth between Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and the North Central Coast. Guests will also discuss and sign the Agreement on cooperation and association for tourism development between Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and the extended North Central region during 2022 - 2025, as well as the Implementation plan for 2022 - 2023; Agreement on tourism growth cooperation between tourism enterprises of Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh city and other cities.
Furthermore, as part of the event, the “Business Matching” program will serve as a marketplace for the North Central provinces’ tourism enterprises, and other tourism and travel businesses across the nation to connect, exchange, promote local products, buy and sell, as well as sign contracts.
Previously, after a period of the Covid-19 pandemic’s disruption, a research program for tourism products of the North Central region was also set up to connect and establish distinctive inter-regional tourism products from Ho Chi Minh City to localities in the North Central area and vice versa.
The event will be broadcasted live from 13:30, July 1, 2022 on VnExpress website and VnExpress.net fanpage.
