The city hopes to pocket over VND81 trillion (US$40 billion) in revenues, or up 15% from last year’s figure.

The local tourism industry is speeding up a series of campaigns to boost domestic demand such as lowering air price tickets.

It is looking towards the upcoming 9th International Travel Expo Ho Chi Minh City - ITE HCMC 2013 in September as an opportunity for meeting with potential international partners.

In addition, local travel companies would join the national tourism sale promotion months in September and December to beef up tourism demands.

The city would conduct other activities to build and develop tourism products and improve service quality to lure more foreign visitors./
