[Griffith University] Responding to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, this project aims to support the recovery and development of the tourism and hospitality sector in Australia and ASEAN countries. The Australia-ASEAN Tourism and Hospitality Forum provides a knowledge-sharing platform and brings together a wide range of stakeholders including practitioners, academic experts, and government officers.
The project is funded by the Australia-ASEAN Council, led by Griffith University, and supported by international partners in Australia and ASEAN such as Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (Vietnam), VinUni (Vietnam), Petra Christian University (Indonesia), Universiti Teknologi Mara (Malaysia), Research Synergy Foundation (Indonesia) and Polytechnic University of the Philippines.
