Mekong cities work together to lure regional guests
Update: Mar 04, 2013
HCM City will work together with Phnom Penh, Vientiane, Yangon to promote tourism in Japan and the Republic of Korea.

According to the HCM City Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the coordination will be discussed at a meeting of the four cities in the Mekong sub-region, scheduled for 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 the Republic of Korea next year.
