This is also a good opportunity to promote the public-private partnership model, develop tourism through cinema, and attract more domestic and international tourists.
Within the framework of the program, there will be a photo exhibition, film screenings, a forum on tourism and cinema connectivity, a gala dinner, and an investment promotion conference.
A concert will be broadcast live on VTV1 channel of the Vietnam Television, with the participation of many Vietnamese renowned singers like Ho Ngoc Ha or Van Mai Huong.
According to Ta Quang Dong, deputy minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism, this is the first program that has ever been held by the ministry with the aim to link the development of Vietnam’s tourism through cinema and combine cinema, one of the strongest developing sectors in the country in recent times, with tourism.
“This is the most powerful method to promote Vietnam’s brands, including tourism ones. Based on the development and spread of cinema around the world, combining cinema with tourism will help to attract more tourists to Vietnam," Dong said.
"Via films, international tourists will get to know the country as a safe, friendly and attractive destination."- (VNS/VLLF)
