The global tourism market is set to fully recover from the COVID-19 pandemic in 2024, and Vietnam will not stand out from this trend, the state news agency (VNA) quoted "insiders" as saying.

According to the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO), the first UNWTO World Tourism Barometer of the year showed an estimated 1.3 billion international travellers in 2023, representing 88% of pre-pandemic levels.

It also reported that international tourism receipts reached US$1.4 trillion in 2023, equivalent to 93% of the figure of US$1.5 trillion in 2019.

"The latest UNWTO data underscores tourism's resilience and rapid recovery, with pre-pandemic numbers expected by the end of 2024,"

said UNWTO Secretary-General Zurab Pololikashvili.

"The rebound is already having a significant impact on economies, jobs, growth and opportunities for communities everywhere,"

he noted.

For Vietnam, the country welcomed 12.6 million international arrivals last year, reaching 70% of the 2019 pre-pandemic level.
