Mekong cities look to attract regional guests

Four cities in the Mekong sub-region, including Phnom Penh, Vientiane, Yangon and HCM City, will jointly promote tourism in Japan and South Korea.

According to the HCM City Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, this will be one of the main topics to be discussed at a meeting of the four cities taking place in HCM City on March 20-22. Last September, the cities’ mayors signed a statement on tourism development cooperation at the International Travel Expo in HCM City.

City officials will discuss the programme as well as other projects about student exchange and linkages of enterprises, banks and other suppliers to create opportunities for tourism development.

The first joint tourism-promotion programme will take place in Japan in May this year and in South Korea next year.-VNS
