Thailand and Vietnam seek to boost tourist cooperation

Thailand’s Ministry of Tourism and Sports and the People’s Committee of Thue Thien Hue Province, Vietnam, recently held round-table talks in efforts to boost cooperation between Thailand and Vietnam’s Thua Thien Hue Province in all matters relating to tourism.

The talks, presided over by Thailand’s Minister of Tourism and Sports, H.E. Mrs. Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul, were attended by Chairman of People’s Committee of Thue Thien Hue Province, Vietnam, Mr. Nguyen Van Cao, who was leading a Vietnamese delegation to Thailand to celebrate 40 years of diplomatic relations between the two nations. Also presented during the meeting were representatives from the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT).

During the talks, agreements were made to improve tourism cooperation and to promote cultural understanding as part of efforts to improve the longstanding friendship between Thailand and Vietnam. There is a drive to enhance the experience of tourists visiting the two ASEAN nations by sharing information on visitor preferences. TAT has also offered to help with the human resource training and to help build connections with Thai travel agents, hotels and airlines and to jointly promote holiday destinations and attractions in the both countries.

Last year, nearly 30 million tourists came to Thailand with 7.88 million of these coming from ASEAN nations. ASEAN is a growing market for Thailand’s tourism. By helping to enhance cross-border tourism across ASEAN including from Vietnam to Thailand, the kingdom’s tourist industry can only benefit.
