According to him, the forum is an opportunity to connect not only Da Nang but also its neighboring localities to the world. 

Aviation and tourism are two industries that have been making great contributions to the city's development, so the planning and development of routes is one of the most important tasks for resuming its economy after the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Routes Asia forum was held for the first time in 2003, connecting the air transport industry and the only flight network in Asia-Pacific.
