VTV.vn - The World Economic Forum (WEF) has announced that Vietnam's tourism experienced great development as stepping up eight grades in the 2021 Travel & Tourism Development Index (TTDI).

Vietnam recorded the highest improvement in score throughout the world (+4.7 per cent) to place the 52nd.

Vietnam was followed by Indonesia and Saudi Arabia witnessing the highest rises in the travel and tourism development index with 12 and 10 places, respectively.

The WEF developed the first report on the Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Index in 2007. Over the past 15 years, this report has become a leading measure in the world’s tourism industry.

The ranking is based on the assessment of a set of tourism development capacity indexes which consists of 5 subindexes with 17 pillars and 112 individual indicators, focusing on evaluating the role of the tourism industry in broader economic and social development.

According to the WEF, over the past two years, the severe damage to the tourism sector due to the COVID-19 pandemic has completely changed its approach in that the forum changed the ranking of the Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Index (TTCI) to TTDI.

The new standards and measures of the TTDI gather factors and policies that enable the sustainable and resilient development of the tourism and travel industry, thereby contributing to a country’s development.

It can be said that Vietnamese tourism’s rise in the TTDI under the new approach of the WEF proved the achievements in COVID-19 prevention and control in Vietnam as well as the flexible and safe adaptation of the country’s tourism industry.
