At a working session with Nguyen Phuong Hoa, head of the International Cooperation Department under the Ministry of Culture, Sport and Tourism, Peng affirmed that China and Vietnam enjoyed strong tourism cooperation before the COVID-19 pandemic broke out, benefiting the people of both countries and practically contributing to the reinforcement of the friendship between the two countries.

The process of restoring international tourism is convincing and encouraging, he said, adding that Vietnam will be one of the countries prioritised for China’s resumption of direct air routes with passengers being not required to show their SARS-CoV-2 PCR negative testing results. Visitors entering the country only need to provide quick test results or engage in 2% probability test, he added.
The Chinese side hopes to continue to work closely with Vietnam in ensuring the legitimate rights of tourists in each country, he stated.
For her part, Hoa welcomed the Chinese side’s adjustments in bilateral tourism cooperation and said she hopes the two sides will continue to collaborate closely to boost the growth of bilateral tourism cooperation in a healthy and practical manner./.
