Kuala Lumpur (VNA) – A road show to promote tourism in Vietnam took place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on December 16.

It is part of a tourism promotion campaign to introduce Vietnam’s new tourism services and visa exemption policy, Ngo Hoai Chung, vice director of the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, said in his opening remarks.

He said once the ASEAN Community is formed on December 31, Vietnam’s tourism sector will see both opportunities and challenges that will require the country to improve the quality of its workforce, vocational training and corporate governance.

Last year, around 330,000 Malaysians arrived in Vietnam. The 11-month figure for this year was 307,000, up 1.9 percent annually. It is expected to hit around 500,000 by 2020.-VNA
