NDO – The Vietnamese Embassy in India in coordination with ASIA DMC Vietnam and India-based Allena Group held a conference on March 12 promoting Vietnam’s images and tourism in Chandigarh City, the capital of the two neighbouring states of Punjab and Haryana in the north of India.

Entitled “Vietnam – A dream destination”, the event focused on introducing high quality resort products and services suitable for customers from Chandigarh - whose average incomes are among the highest in India.

At the conference, Vietnamese Ambassador to India Pham Sanh Chau talked about the potential and capacity of Vietnam in organising large events regarding tourism and entertainment while expressing his sympathy for the difficulties that the tourism industry faced in 2020.

He hoped that the event will help connect enterprises and prepare conditions for recovery this year. The Ambassador also expressed his wish that the two sides would promote further cooperation in other fields including skilled workers, information technology and education.

Sanjay Kumar, vice president of Chandigarh City in charge of tourism, culture, archaeology and museums, expressed his appreciation for the Embassy of Vietnam's efforts to connect Vietnam with Chandigarh and the North India region.

He emphasised some of the cultural similarities between the two countries and praised many special tourism destinations in Vietnam.

Other participants at the event also highly valued the potential for bilateral tourism and trade cooperation between the two countries while expecting the launch of a direct flight between Chandigarh and Vietnam in the near future to boost economic and tourism cooperation between the two sides.
