The Ministry of Tourism and Sports will use Thailand’s strength to develop tourism and attract more tourists. The ministry has expressed confidence that there will be more foreign tourists visiting Thailand this year with a revenue estimate of 27 trillion baht.
At a seminar of the five regional Thai chambers of commerce, Minister of Tourism and Sports Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul spoke about the country’s guidelines to develop the Thai tourism sector. The minister said the guidelines are aimed at promoting six sectors that Thailand has readiness and potential such as sport tourism, health tourism, maritime tourism and food tourism.
The private sector and communities will take part in developing tourist sites and increasing the value of community-made products. The ministry will also focus on attracting tourists from ASEAN countries to visit Thailand before traveling to a third country and issue a visa to allow CLMV and Chinese medical tourists to stay in Thailand for 90 days.
As for security measures for tourists, Mrs. Kobkarn confirmed that the ministry always works with national security units and there are volunteers who are local people helping to ensure security all the time. This will make tourists feel more confident, said the minister.
