Hanoi (VNA) Vietnam and the Republic of Korea (RoK) exchanged experience in ensuring safety for tourists amid COVID-19, as well as tourism recovery and development after the pandemic at a seminar held virtually on October 22.

The event was jointly held by the Institute for Tourism Development Research at the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism and the Korea Culture and Tourism Institute.

It is also expected to boost relations between the two institutes and create a foundation to build a network of tourism experts between Vietnam and the Republic of Korea (RoK).

Director of the Korea Culture and Tourism Institute Kim Dea-kwan said the two countries have maintained close cooperation over the past time, especially in culture and tourism through diverse exchange activities.

Many delegates shared the view that the best policy for travel companies is to help them resume operations in line with COVID-19 prevention and control measures.

Vietnam will welcome international tourists to Phu Quoc island off the Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang in November on a trial basis. The model will be rolled out on a larger scale in other destinations like Ha Long Bay (Quang Ninh), Hoi An (Quang Nam), Nha Trang (Khanh Hoa), and Da Lat (Lam Dong), towards fully reopening when conditions permit./.
