In his opening remarks, Ambassador Dang Xuan Dung stated that Vietnam is a favourite destination of international travellers who want to learn about its diverse and long-established culture as well as explore its breath-taking scenery.
He added that international arrivals in Vietnam have been growing steadily in recent years, with 15 million in 2018 and 8.5 million in the first half of 2019.
The diplomat said that through Argentinian travel agencies, he expects to see more tourists from the South American country visit Vietnam.
At the event, embassy staff gave the audience an overview of Vietnamese history and culture as well as its recent achievements in socio-economic development.
The audience were also introduced to popular destinations in Vietnam, such as Ha Long Bay, Hue and Hoi An, and were informed that each year there are over 10,000 Argentinian visitors to Vietnam.
Argentinian travel agencies also watched a video on traditional Vietnamese food and were provided with answers for their questions on designing tours to Vietnam.
