Korea keen to hold tourism roadshow in Dhaka


DHAKA, Aug 21, 2020 (BSS) – Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) is
planning to organize a roadshow in Dhaka next year to promote Korean
tourism as well as explore collaboration opportunities with
Bangladesh’s tour operators when travel resumes in post-corona period.

KTO expressed its keen interest to explore the Bangladesh tourism
market as last year more than 17,000 Bangladeshi nationals traveled
South Korea that is 11% growth compare to 2018.

These were revealed at the first ever webinar organized by KTO in
association with TravTalk recently, a press release said here today.

KTO Delhi office deputy director Young Geul Choi, Marketing Manager
Sandeep Dutta and President of Tour Operators Association of
Bangladesh (TOAB) Md Rafeuzzaman joined the discussion.

“We think the potential for travel in the future is much bigger,
that is why we decided to organise this product training to update the
Bangladesh travel industry about South Korea’s latest tourism
products,” Choi said.

Besides updating the trade about Korea’s most beautiful and scenic
locales, Dutta said, one of the best things about South Korea is the
availability of Halal and Muslim-friendly food.

“For outbound tourism from Bangladesh, it is a very good
opportunity to click business and choose Destination Korea,”
Rafeuzzaman said.
