This event attracted a large number of participants inclucing leaders of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, key tourism localities, and tourism associations and businesses.
The stimulus program is expected to make domestic tourists boom in the near future, giving priority to traveling to Viet Nam even when the Covid-19 translation is controlled globally.
With the aim of “Vietnamese people travel Viet Nam”, the conference discussed many important issues for the tourism industry, including:
-  Promote attractive tourist destinations and products; reopen tourism, ensure safety and prevent epidemics.
- Develop and deploy tourism stimulus packages: Introduce packages of quality tourism products and services at reasonable prices with the incentives and commitments of service providers. 
- Identify consumer demand and behavior of Vietnamese tourists after the pandemic.
In the coming time, tourists tend to choose nearby destinations, traveling with family, small group, open places and wide space.
