An international exhibition to boost tourism connectivity in the Vietnam-Laos-Cambodia development triangle area kicked off in Phan Thiet city of Vietnam’s central Binh Thuan province on September 11.

The event, themed “Three Countries, One Destination”, features 16 pavilions of Vietnamese localities and provinces of southern Laos and northeastern Cambodia, advertising their tourism potentials, related products and available projects with a view to attract investment.

They also introduce stunning landscapes and renowned historical and cultural sites in the three countries along with tours to the areas.

The exhibition is also a platform for the three countries’ localities to present their advantages and accomplishments so as to attract investment and cooperation in many other fields.

Chairman of the Binh Thuan People’s Committee Le Tien Phuong said amidst the increasing international cooperation, the effective connectivity among Vietnamese localities, domestic and foreign travel companies as well as the three countries is instrumental in sustainably tapping into tourism potentials of the area and each locality and improving the sector’s competitiveness.
