Minister of Culture, Sports, and Tourism Nguyen Ngoc Thien spoke at the opening ceremony of the fair in Hanoi on Wednesday: “This event focuses on tours to Vietnam’s sea and islands, which promote the tourism sector’s competitiveness and make it more attractive to foreigners. VITM, I believe, will become a prestigious tourism event regionally and globally.”
