Vietnam attends tourism fair in Russia

Moscow, May 27 (VNA) – Vietnam received a warm welcome from international friends at this year’s Pacific International Tourism Exро (PITE-2015) recently held in Vladivostok city in Russia’s Primorsky Krai region.

The Vietnamese stall showcased documentations on national heritage and useful tourist information along with traditionally popular food and drink, like spring roll and coffee.

At the annual exhibition, which is the 19th of its kind, the Consulate General of Vietnam in Vladivostok in collaboration with Primorsky Krai’s authorities organised a workshop on their potential for tourism cooperation.

Currently, a huge number of Far Eastern tourists visit Vietnam every year, particularly central coastal Nha Trang city and some southern destinations, not vice versa.

Thus, participants paid a great attention to discussing measures that will boost the two-way tourist flow between the sides.

They noted that a direct flight connecting Vietnam and Vladivostok should be opened as quickly as possible.

PITE-2015 gathered 268 businesses from 20 countries and territories worldwide including Japan, the Republic of Korea, China, and Guam.
