Ambassador Thanh said that in the fields, the two countries have maintained close connectivity through bilateral cooperation and multilateral mechanisms such as ASEAN Tourism Forum, ASEAN Tourism Ministers’ Meeting, and APEC Tourism Ministerial Meeting.
He proposed the Thai minister share his country’s experiences in tourism recovery after the COVID-19 pandemic, boost cooperation in forming culture tourism routes linking the two nations, and promote investment in services and infrastructure in Vietnam as well as the building of a joint action programme on collaboration in this field.
Minister Phiphat congratulated Vietnam on implementing an effective reopening roadmap, given the resumption of international air routes with over 20 countries, including Thailand.
