A year-on-year surge of 20.1 percent was reported in the number of tourists from West European countries visiting Vietnam in the first five months of this year as a result of the 11-month-old visa exemption policy.

20.1% surge reported in West European tourist arrivals

This is a considerable increase compared to an average growth of 5.35 percent between 2010-2014.

The result stemmed from a visa exemption programme launched in July 2015 which granted visa waivers to citizens of the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy and Spain.

The Vietnam National Administration of Tourism hoped that the visa waiver and tourism stimulus programmes would attract 1.1 million arrivals from those markets in the next few years, up 50 percent from 2015.

Vietnam now has visa waivers in place for 22 countries, including nine member states in the Association of South East Asian group.

The country expects to welcome 8.5 million foreign visitors and 60 million domestic travellers by the end of this year, earning a total 370 trillion VND (16.8 billion USD) in revenue.

Democrats' task: Rebuild the blue political wall in Midwest

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Democrats need to rebuild the political "blue wall" of traditionally Democratic upper Midwest and Great Lakes states that Republican Donald Trump captured with an appeal to white, working-class voters.Hillary Clinton's failure to hold key blocs of these voters helped seal Trump's stunning electoral victory and leaves Democrats with a gaping, perhaps long-term, hole in the party's national battle front.
