Total visitors to Ho Chi Minh City exceeded 11 million in the first six months of this year, the city’s deputy chairwoman Phan Thi Thang reported at a seminar held in north-central Nghe An Province on Friday afternoon.

The figure, including nearly 500,000 international arrivals, represented an increase of 43 percent over the same period last year.

The southern metropolis’ total tourism revenue hit nearly VND50 trillion (US$2.14 billion) during the January-June period, up nearly 30 percent year-on-year.

“The connection [between Ho Chi Minh City and other localities] has created a resilience of tourism in each province and city, thereby contributing to improving their tourism competitiveness and Vietnam’s on an international scale,” Thang said.

Friday’s seminar marked the introduction of the sixth joint tourism development program linking with Ho Chi Minh City after the first five between the southern city and 13 provinces and cities in the Mekong Delta, the southeast region, the expanded northwest region, and the northeast region.

The administration of Ho Chi Minh City is expected to collaborate with its counterparts in the central region to promote tourism activities under this sixth program.
