The report forecasts an average growth rate of 14% in international tourists arrival in Vietnam during 2019 compared to 2018.

Vietnam will be followed by Papua New Guinea and Lao PDR, each of which has average annual growth rates well in excess of the Asia Pacific average of 5.5% between 2018 and 2023. These figures show that Vietnam has increasingly affirmed its position on the world’s tourist map with positive signals.
