Hanoi – Hanoi eyes to welcome over 30 million visitors, including 7 foreigners, by 2025, according to the municipal Party Committee’ draft conclusion on tourism development for 2016-2020 and following years.

The visitors are expected to spend more than 130 trillion VND (5.59 billion USD) while in the capital.

At a conference collecting feedback on the conclusion held on June 15, participants basically agreed with the targets and solutions drafted.

They said it is necessary for the local sector to boost public-private partnership, formation of new products, and tourism connectivity.

The capital city hosted 6.53 million tourists in the first five months of 2022, more than double the figure in the same period last year.

It greeted 126,200 foreign visitors, particularly during SEA Games 31 held this May. As a result, the city earned an estimated 18.9 trillion VND (815.36 million USD) from tourism, doubling the previous year's figure.
