VTV.vn - The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism organized an online conference to review the tourism industry in 2015 yesterday.

The conference drew the participation of representatives from departments of culture, sports and tourism across the country. Let’s hear more about the past year’s performance and tasks being set for 2016.

Nearly 8 million visitors from around the world arrived in Vietnam in 2015, up 1% compared with 2014. This figure came as a surprise, as the number of foreign visitors declined over the first half of this year.

Participants believe this result is attributable to the central and local government’s determination to augment the competitiveness of domestic tourism. Notably, in 2015, the government issued 15-day visa exemptions for visitors from France, Germany, the UK ,Spain, Italy, and Belarus.
