In order to better tap the two markets, the VNAT signed a number of cooperation agreements with Russian and Indian tourism agencies, including promoting marketing campaigns with the message “Vietnam – A Safe Destination” in the two countries.
It also held tourism promotion activities, fairs, culture days and weeks with the participation of many firms.
Vietnam’s carriers along with Russian and Indian partners will also enhance connectivity to facilitate people-to-people exchange and travel.
