The cooperation contents mainly focused on building a tourism program to Nghe An on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of carrying out President Ho Chi Minh's Testament (1969 - 2019) with a participation of travel agencies such as as Saigontourist, Benthanh Tourist, Vietnam Airlines, etc.

Speaking at the event, representatives of travel businesses as Saigontourist, Ben Thanh Tourist, etc said that most of the tourists like inter-tours including several destinations of neighboring provinces instead of single tour of Ho Chi Minh City- Nghe An. 

Because of the same cost, they can visit many more attractive destinations such as five- day tours of Ho Chi Minh City - Nghe An - Ha Tinh - Quang Binh or Ho Chi Minh City - Nghe An - Thanh Hoa. 

As this reason, the enterprises suggested that Nghe An province should open new tours and expand exploitation of tourist sites in the Northwestern part of the province for example "Sunflower Farm", "Ta Po Stream", familiarization trip, etc.

In order to support businesses to stimulate their travel routes, the national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines decided to offer a discoubt of 40 percent for round trip ticket of Ho Chi Minh City – Vinh route whereas Bamboo Airways has also launched a suitable support price, etc.
