The programme was organised by the Hanoi Tourism Department to connect domestic tourism enterprises with international travel enterprises, creating opportunities for businesses of the two sides to meet, cooperate and exchange experiences on tourism development.

This is also a bridge for Vietnamese enterprises to work, directly exchange and sign cooperation agreements with Australian partners.

Earlier this week, from August 19 to 23, Hanoi Tourism Department in collaboration with Vietnam Airlines organised a programme to bring Australian tourism enterprises to survey destinations in Hanoi and Quang Ninh.

Over the years, Australia is one of ten key tourism markets for Hanoi. In the first seven months of 2019, international tourists to Hanoi reached 3.73 million, of which Australian tourists reached over 109,000.

In order to further promote promotional activities between the two markets, Director of Hanoi Tourism Department Tran Duc Hai affirmed that Hanoi Tourism Department will continue to support the best conditions for Australian travel agencies and tourists to Hanoi. He also expressed his hope that Australian businesses would have many more programmes to attract tourists to Hanoi and Vietnam.
