Vũ Thế Bình, deputy chairman of Viet Nam Tourism Association, said the event has been postponed twice this year due to COVID-19.

The event, at which firms and localities will promote their products and destinations, this year will be themed 'New Normal Situation, New opportunity'.

The event last year was held in Ha Noi in November and drew more than 50,000 visitors.

The association has sent a letter to all tourism enterprises to encourage them to join the Government's vaccination programme where they pay for employees to receive the jabs.

Some 81,000 people involved in the field have registered to get vaccinated so far. – VNS
