He stressed the need to improve the quality of tourism services in a more sustainable manner, and simplify entrance and exit procedures to create favourable conditions for tourists, especially those from Europe.
Paul Lorsignol, Sales & Marketing Manager of Travel Sensation – a Belgian company - said that with its diversity in culture and landscape, Vietnam is an attractive destination for holidaymakers.
According to him, high-quality tours to learn about the cultural identity will offer chances for European tourists to discover a well-preserved Vietnam.
These tours will lure more visitors to the country in the next 10-15 years, he predicted.
Last year, Vietnam welcomed more than 15.6 million foreign tourists, up 19.9 percent year-on-year, of whom nearly 32,000 come from Belgium.
