Vietnam National Administration of Tourism is working with the country's embassies in Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia to bring more regional tourists to Vietnam.

The administration (VNAT) launched conferences in the countries Monday through Saturday to showcase Vietnamese attractions, traditions and the investment potentials of the country's tourism industry.

Stimulus policies such as quick visa issuance or allowing right-side drivers are also being discussed at the talks.

The program is part of a plan to develop mutual tourism support between Southeast Asian nations.

More than 100 officials from tour operators, agencies, carriers, commerce and press agencies are expected to join the conferences.

Vietnam received 3.8 million international tourists in 2009 and planned to receive 4.2 million this year.
