On behalf of the Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism of Lao PDR, I am pleased to announce that Lao PDR will be hosting the ASEAN TOURISM FORUM 2024 from 22nd to 27th January 2024 in Vientiane Capital with the theme: “Quality and Responsible Tourism – Sustaining ASEAN Future.”
By organizing this event, our aim is to strengthen our collaboration in further improving our tourism products to attract more international tourists, and at the same time, to contribute more to our community and to sustainability of tourism within the region.
Vientiane Capital is the home to the most significant Laos cultural and historical attractions, and the center of major businesses with excellent connectivity to the surrounding of our neighbors.
In 2024, there will be important events for Laos such as Lao PDR will be the chair of ASEAN Summit, host of ASEAN Tourism Forum 2024 and launching the Visit Laos Year 2024. Therefore; the government of the Lao PDR has developed tourism infrastructure, facilities, transportation, tourism activities, various tourism products and will upgrade the tourism services up to standards. In preparation for Tourism exhibition, the Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism has signed the TRAVEX Agreement with ASEANTA to operate the tourism exhibition during the ATF 2024.
Taking this opportunity, I would like to invite you all to come and visit Laos to experience Lao tourist attractions by yourselves. I, therefore, would like to take this opportunity to cordially invite you to attend the ASEAN Tourism Forum 2024 in Vientiane Capital, Lao PDR. Thank you.
