The Mekong Tourism Forum will soon take place in Vietnam29/08/2022
From October 9–14th, 2022, Nam Hoi An Resort in Quang Nam province will serve as the direct host of the Mekong Tourism Forum.
With the topic of “Reconstructing the tourism industry… Resilient to tourism recovery”, the Mekong Tourism Forum will be the first interactive event to gather public and private tourism leaders and experts in the Greater Mekong Subregion since the Covid-19 pandemic disrupted the industry, according to the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
At the same time, the forum aims to promote practical action and build a more resilient, inclusive, sustainable, and successful Mekong Subregion’s tourism industry.
At the forum, speakers will focus on post-Covid-19 tourism recovery, digital transformation, supply chain localization, social enterprise business models, and industry best practices in recovering tourism, especially using the latest technologies.
Discussed topics at the forum will cover major trends affecting the tourism industry’s recovery. The panelists and experts will propose necessary policies, regulations, and investments to restore tourism and travel activities; nature-based solutions, and applied technology.
According to a representative of the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, this is a great opportunity to promote Quang Nam tourism in particular and Vietnam’s tourism in general. More specifically, this is the first forum to take place since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, so if successful, it will spread a new and friendly image of Vietnam’s tourism post-pandemic.
First held in 1996, the Mekong Tourism Forum is an annual government-led event dedicated to the tourism industry in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS). The event provides a collaborative platform for tourism and travel stakeholders to discuss tourism development in the region, along with the marketing and promotion of tourism to, from, and within the GMS.
The Greater Mekong Subregion includes Cambodia, China (specifically Yunnan and Guangxi provinces), Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam. In 1992, with the support of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), six countries entered into a sub-regional economic cooperation program to strengthen economic ties.
With support from ADB and other donors, the GMS Program supports the implementation of high-priority sub-regional projects in the areas of agriculture, energy, environment, medical, and human resources development, information and communication technology, tourism, transportation, trade facilitation, and urban development.
