Vietnam Airlines launches tourism program in Japan

2011-10-13 (GMT + 7)

A ceremony was held by Vietnam Airlines in Nagoya city, Japan on October 11 to introduce “Four nations –one destination”-a new program on Vietnam’s land, people, culture and tourism.

Governor of Aichi Prefecture, Hideaki Omura, said Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar and Vietnam are all attractive destinations for Japanese visitors.

In 2008, the leaders of Aichi Prefecture and the Vietnam Ministry of Planning and Investment signed a memorandum of understanding on boosting trade and economic exchanges between their businesses.

Around 60 Vietnamese businesses are operating in Aichi and a large number of Vietnamese students studying there.

The Aichi leaders hoped Vietnam Airlines will increase the number of flights between Vietnam and Aichi.

Vietnamese Ambassador Nguyen Phu Binh said he was pleased to know that many large groups in the prefecture have invested in Vietnam and the number of visitors from Aichi to Vietnam have risen considerably.

The Ambassador stressed that after arriving in Vietnam by air visitors can easily travel to Laos, Cambodia, and Myanmar.

Nguyen Minh Hai, Director of the VietnamAirlines Representative Office in Japan, said that his corporation is planning to expand its operation in the coming year.

Earlier on October 10-11, Vietnam Airlines launched its “Roadshow 2011” programme in Nagoya.
