A delegation from Ho Chi Minh City participated in a fair to promote trade, tourism and business connectivity held by the Tourism Promotion Organisation for Asia Pacific Cities (TPO) in Japan on November 15.

At the event, Le Truong Hien Hoa, Director of HCM City’s Tourism Promotion Centre, said the fair offered an opportunity for the city to connect with other TPO members and expand its tourism promotion.

Over the past year, HCM City has signed two cooperation agreements with Incheon and Tongyeong cities of the Republic of Korea, thus promoting its tourism and receiving support in this field, he added.

Representative of the organising board Shin Yeon-sung, TPO General Secretary, highlighted the bright future of tourism of Viet Nam in general and HCM City in particular. He also praised HCM City for its active contributions to the development of the TPO as a member.

Held by the TPO, the annual fair is a platform for Asia Pacific cities and travel agencies to seek partners, introduce their tour packages and expand business cooperation.

It also provides a chance for TPO members to exchange information, conduct research projects and surveys as well as enhance cultural exchange and friendship between Asia Pacific countries and cities.

Within the event’s framework, the regular meeting of the 29th TPO Executive Board is scheduled to take place on November 16.

The TPO was established in 2002, of which HCM City is a co-founder and member of the Executive Board. Currently, the organisation consists of 78 cities and 38 businesses and non-government organisations from 10 Asia-Pacific countries and territories.
