This comes as the local tourism sector has gone to great lengths to implement stimulus packages in an effort to revive the domestic tourism industry following a severe downturn caused by the global impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic.

With the stimulus scheme launched with the theme of “Vietnam - a safe and attractive destination”, local businesses have given priority to ensuring the safety of visitors, whilst also launching attractive tourism packages in terms of their prices and services.

Furthermore, the Vietnam National Tourism Administration (VNAT) has launched the "Safe Vietnam Travel " application with the aim of making it easier for guests to view how safe various destinations are before arrival, in addition to searching for information on restaurants and hotel services.

The VNAT and the General Department of Market Surveillance are expected to sign a regulation on October 30 regarding the speeding up of the use of digital technology in tourism activities. The primary goal of this will be to improve the efficiency of state management whilst ensuring the interests of visitors is maintained.

According to the VNAT, the National Conference on Tourism 2020 will be held in the ancient town of Hoi An in the central Quang Nam province in November in order to review the tourism industry’s recent developments, along with proposing solutions to help the tourism industry recover.
