Vanuatu has achieved its objective in attending the World Mini Expo in Yeosu Korea by establishing South Korea as a tourist source market. To mark the occasion the VTO General Manager, Ms. Linda Kalpoi has signed an MOU with Mr. Sae Yoon Kwon, Director of DTG Korea to establish the framework for cooperatively marketing Vanuatu as tourist destination for the Korean people. With the support of VTO, DGT Korea shall conduct various marketing activities within Korea to attract tourist to Vanuatu from the Korean market. Ms. Kalpoi states, “This is a very exciting period for Vanuatu Tourism in tapping into the Asian market and developing its presence in the long-haul emerging markets such as Korea and China. We have not only appealed to visitors but have also attracted investors to the country following on from Vanuatu’s participation at the Korea Expo”. Ms Kalpoi further comments, “In addition, Vanuatu has already seen two key wholesaler familiarization visits to Vanuatu from Korea along with two SBS TV Series filmed in Vanuatu that have raised the awareness of Vanuatu in the Korean market”.
