The ASEAN Tourism Forum (ATF) and the ASEAN Travel Expo (TRAVEX) will be organized in the northern province of Quang Ninh in January 2019.
Leaders of the Viet Nam National Administration of Tourism and Quang Ninh Province organized a meeting on the organization of these two events.
The ATF is the largest-scale event of tourism cooperation among ASEAN nations, heading to establish ASEAN a single tourism destination, develop tourism in a sustainable way and promote exchanges and consolidate peace and prosperity in the region.
The ATF 2019 creates an opportunity for Viet Nam to introduce its nation, people and tourism as well as attract more investment in tourism in the nation.
The ASEAN Tourism Forum (ATF) is a cooperative regional effort to promote the ASEAN region as a single tourist destination where Asian hospitality and cultural diversity are featured.
The Travel Exchange (TRAVEX) component is a trade-only mart that showcases the world's largest contingent of ASEAN destination products and services, and facilitates selling, buying and promoting the region internationally.
This is the second time Viet Nam hosts the event after 10 years of its first organization in 2009.
