It was signed by Vietnamese Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Hoang Tuan Anh and his RoK counterpart Yu In-chon during Mr Anh’s visit to Seoul.
During their talks, both host and guest discussed ways to increase bilateral exchanges in the fields of culture and tourism.
Yu In-chon said the RoK will send more delegations travel to Vietnam and work closely with relevant Vietnamese agencies to boost tourism in the near future. He said he believe Vietnam would become the No 1 destination for RoK tourists.
Minister Anh said Vietnam and RoK have great potential for tourism cooperation. The RoK is a promising tourism market and Vietnam is making efforts to lure tourists from the country, he said.
Every year, about 400,000 RoK tourists visit Vietnam.
