President of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Klin Sarasin has proposed to Deputy Prime Minister Gen. Tanasak Patimapragorn a suite of amendments in order to raise tourism standards and ensure the safety of travelers.

Tourism and Sports Minister Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul and Mr. Klin, who is also a member of the National Reform Steering Assembly, met with Gen. Tanasak to brief him on the progress of tourism reforms, which are aimed at centralizing tourism units.

Both the minister and TAT President suggested to the Deputy Prime Minister that certain tourism laws be amended to facilitate tourist data collection and ensure tourist safety.

They recommended replacing the manual method of passport data entry with an e-passport system that will allow hotels to collect personal details faster and more effectively, elevating the standards of accommodation services. The two also called for tourism data, or a ‘Tourism Gateway’ with tourist services, to become more accessible online, in order for the industry to be more competitive.
