VOV.VN - The central city of Da Nang is poised to host the 16th Asian route development forum 2022 (Routes Asia 2022), the largest event aimed at promoting and connecting flight networks in the Asia-Pacific region.

The event is slated to take place from June 4 to June 9 and is expected to draw roughly 450 delegates from 200 international aviation agencies and organisations from across Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and North America.

According to the city’s Department of Tourism, they have worked with Informa Routes and Travel Retail, as well as relevant agencies and sectors, in order to make thorough infrastructure and personnel preparations for the event, including working session between city leaders and investors.

Along with introducing destinations located in Da Nang and typical local products through various communication methods, the central city has designed plans to ensure COVID-19 safety and security throughout the event.

According to Truong Thi Hong Hanh, director of the municipal Department of Tourism, the forum is anticipated to open up a range of great opportunities for the aviation industry in general and the tourism industry in Da Nang in particular. Indeed, this will contribute to re-opening and developing international routes, whilst attracting greater investment and tourism to the central coastal city.

By hosting the event, Da Nang continues to affirm its position as Asia's leading event and festival destination, as well as being a hub for aviation and tourism development in Vietnam and throughout the wider region, she stressed.

In the framework of the 16th Routes Asia in Da Nang, nine events are planned, including an exhibition on tourism and aviation and a direct business connection programme with over 500 meetings between partners on the system of the Asia route development forum. This is along with conferences and workshops on aviation restoration in Asia and air service development in the new normal, among others. 

The function is poised to help the central city promote and introduce its image and development potential, thereby creating a foundation for restoring and expanding  international flight networks, promoting investment in aviation and tourism infrastructure, and boosting the exchange of goods and services between Da Nang and partner cities in Asia.
