The ceremony, marking the 58th anniversary of the Vietnamese tourism sector, was attended by Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam. The organising board also announced the winners of a writing contest on Vietnamese tourism, which was launched in October 2017 under the theme “I Love Vietnam”. Out of 400 submissions, the grand prize went to “Welcome to Vietnam - a foreign tourist’s perspective” by Lana O’Sullivan from the United States.

The tourism sector has achieved 30% growth over the last 3 years. It hopes to serve 16 million foreign and 82 million domestic tourists this year.
