Laos hosts tourism fair
VIENTIANE, 8 August 2012: Savannakhet province, in central Laos will host the Trade Exhibition and Tourism Fair 2012, 27 to 31 October, at Savan-ITECC in the Kaysone Phomvihane district.
Savan-ITECC is part of a casino and hotel located just outside Savannakhet town.
The event will promote tourism and trade in Laos, Vietnam, Thailand and Myanmar.
The fair is just one of many activities supporting Visit Laos Year 2012 that lead up to hosting the Asean Tourism Forum in Vientiane next January.
During the five-day event, visitors will enjoy cultural performances from Laos’ Savannakhet province, Vietnam’s Quang Tri province, and Thailand’s Mukdahan province.
The Asian Development Bank has backed the East-West corridor project financially through loans to build new highways and studies on how tourism and trade could be expanded on a network of road routes that will ultimately connect Myanmar, Thailand, Laos and Vietnam.
