The Vietnamese Embassy in Egypt organised a seminar in the coastal tourist city of Sharm El Sheikh on October 26 to seek measures to boost cooperation between the two countries in various fields, especially economy, investment and tourism.
Addressing the function, Vietnamese Ambassador Tran Thanh Cong said the two nations see great potential for tourism collaboration. But the number of Egyptian tourists to Vietnam remains humble as they still lack information about the Southeast Asian country.
Therefore, the seminar aims to promote the image and tourist destinations of Vietnam to Egyptian friends, thus increasing the number of visitors from the North African country, he said.
Florin Macovei, a scholar from Romania, said Vietnam should promote its potential and strengths, and further advertise its famous tourist sites to international visitors, he noted.
According to Mohamed Rabie El-Sherbini from Egypt’s Alexandria city, Egyptians need to have more information about Vietnam, not only its history and culture but also its economy and tourism.
During the seminar, a representative of the Vietnamese Embassy presented a report on economic-trade cooperation between Vietnam and Egypt as well as highlighted Vietnam’s outstanding economic development achievements.
Documentary films featuring the landscapes and people of Vietnam were screened, together with a display of photos, items, books, newspapers and publications on tourism and handicraft products of Vietnam.VNA
