Deputy Director General of Vietnam National Administration of Tourism Ha Van Sieu said that the signing ceremony of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Ho Chi Minh City Tourism Promotion Center and the Vietnam Travel and Transport Marketing Joint-stock Company (Vietravel) is marking the first presence of Ho Chi Minh City tourism industry in the European market.

The Vietnamese Government always creates the best conditions for French companies to come and do their businesses in Vietnam, he added.

Currently, the European tourism market has been evaluated as an important and stable tourism market for the “smokeless industry” of  Ho Chi Minh City, especially Germany and France which are two of the five Western European countries whose passport holders allowed 15- day free visa entry and sent the most visitors to HCMC in 2018.
