– Vietnam’s Embassy in Chile joined the ASEAN Tourism Information Fair on June 22 in Santiago, Chile’s capital, which attracted hundreds of companies operating in the tourism sector in Chile and other countries.

Vietnamese Ambassador to Chile Ngo Duc Thang attended a talk in the framework of the fair where he introduced Vietnam, its people as well as UNESCO-recognised heritage sites.

The embassy also distributed leaflets, books to visitors and screened the video clip Welcome to Vietnam at the event.

Many Chilean companies expressed their willingness to cooperate with Vietnamese partners and the embassy to promote tourism products.
