Vietnamese Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh has asked the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism (MCST) to consider and announce a detailed roadmap for the reopening of the tourism industry.

The request was made following the Vietnam Tourism Association’s petition for possible solutions for the recovery of the tourism industry.
Accordingly, the Government Office on January 29 issued Document No.758/VPCP-KGVX on the direction of the prime minister, asking the MCST to work on the detailed roadmap for the reopening.
After an already bad year for business in 2020, Vietnam's tourism revenue fell even further in 2021.
In total, Vietnam received just over 157,000 international tourist arrivals in 2021, a dramatic decline from over 3.8 million arrivals in the previous year, due to the aftermath of the pandemic.
