The Vietnam Tourism Association (VITA) and the Korea Tourism Organization of the Republic of Korea (KTO) sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in Hanoi on September 28.

Under the MoU, members of VITA will receive support in developing tours to the RoK, improving the tours' quality of tourism programs and ensuring rights and benefits for Vietnamese tourists when traveling to the RoK, while enhancing service quality for Korean tourists in Vietnam.

Vu The Binh, Chairman of VITA, said the MoU is a foundation for the two sides to develop professional tourism programs.

Lee Jae Hoon, head representative of KTO in Vietnam expressed his hope that the two sides will pro-actively exchange tourism information as well as human resources, market trend and tourism policies in order to improve the RoK’s tourism quality and better serve Vietnamese tourists.

Besides, the RoK’s tourism businesses will actively participate in fairs, tourism promotion conferences held by both sides, bolster collaboration between KTO and VITA through business to business (B2B), Business To Consumer (B2C) events and famtrips, among others.
