Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnam ranks 67th among 136 economies in the recently released Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Index (TTCI) 2017, going up eight places compared to the same period in 2015.
Released by the World Economic Forum (WEF) every two years since 2007, the TTCI 2017 analysed 136 economies and scored each according to three sub-indices: regulatory framework; business environment and infrastructure; and human, cultural and natural resources.
The TTCI provides a means to measure a country’s performance, and utilises sub-indices and their component parts to represent the overall quality, future potential and long-term sustainability of the tourism sector within each country assessed.
In terms of security and safety perception, Vietnam ranks 57th, rising by 18 places. The country occupies the highest position in the sub-section, index of terrorism incidence, as well as in timeliness of providing monthly/quarterly travel and tourism data.
