On the morning of May 15, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc chaired the Standing Government meeting, listening to the national steering committee's report on the prevention of Covid-19.
Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc assessed that over the past 30 days, Vietnam had an important initial success in achieving its dual goal, both to combat the Covid-19 epidemic and to boost production and business so as not to break the economy.
No entry allowed for tourists
After reviewing the opinion of the national steering committee, the Prime Minister confirmed that we no longer have contagious status in the community. This is the condition to attract investment, but not international tourists yet when the disease is contagious in many countries and there is no vaccine, special medicine.
First of all, continue to prevent the disease from from the outside, not allowing tourists to entry Vietnam, only issuing visas for investors, experts, and officials at embassies of other countries and requests for appropriate isolation measures.
The Prime Minister asked to step up production, import and export, promote domestic tourism and tourism industry to promote and prepare for opening international tourism to countries and teritories that control covid-19 well. In each specific case, the Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism will report to the Prime Minister for consideration.
