Sustainability will be at the heart of the 42nd ASEAN Tourism Forum,
which will be held under the theme of "Quality and Responsible Tourism:
Sustaining ASEAN's Future”. The forum, along with the 27th Meeting of
the ASEAN Tourism Ministers and other related meetings, will be held in
Vientiane, Laos from 22-27 January 2024.
In line with the focus on responsible tourism and sustainability, the ATF 2024 website features a digital platform that facilitates buyer-seller interactions.
