Marriott International plans to launch 20 additional hotels and resorts in Vietnam's prime locations, as president and CEO Anthony Capuano highlights the country's attractive tourism assets, including its natural landscapes, rich culture, and diverse cuisine.
Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh on October 25 met with Anthony Capuano, president and CEO of Marriott International, as reported by the government's Electronic Information Portal.
During the meeting, PM Chinh congratulated Marriott on their global and particularly Vietnamese ventures, noting their success in developing high-end hotel and resort chains.
"Tourism is a crucial economic sector, pivotal for nationwide economic growth and benefitting local economies,” he said. "Marriott should continue to invest expansively in tourism, hospitality, and resorts, aligning with Vietnam's conditions and appealing to international tourists."
Capuano outlined Marriott’s operations in Vietnam, managing 16 hotels under eight global brands such as JW Marriott, Le Meridien, and Sheraton.
With plans to inaugurate 20 more hotels and resorts in key locations like Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Danang, and Phu Quoc, Capuano praised Vietnam's tourism potential, citing its natural beauty, cultural richness, and culinary diversity.
"We are deeply committed to expanding our investment and long-term development in Vietnam," Capuano said. "Our vision aligns closely with PM Chinh's objectives, focusing on enhancing Vietnam's appeal as a premier tourist destination."
Marriott also plans to employ more high-quality Vietnamese talent within its hotel chain and actively engage in social welfare activities in the country.
Established in 1927 in the US by J. Willard and Alice Marriott, Marriott International, a global hospitality leader, now operates as the world's largest hotel chain. With a strong commitment to the founding family's principles, the company maintains an influential presence in the industry, boasting about 8,000 properties and nearly 1.5 million rooms within 139 countries and territories.
