A spokesperson for the Thai government says the PM is confident Thailand will see a boost to tourism following the APEC Summit. Trisulee Trisaranakul says the PM has praised various events that were held during the summit and showcased Thailand’s cuisine, tourism destinations and cultural activities such as Muay Thai – albeit all that culture was only shared with a select few international dignitories, their spouses and staffers.

Trisulee says Prayut Chan-o-cha was encouraged by world leaders participating in Thai activities, such as the French President, Emmanuel Macron, offering alms at Wat Pho and watching a Muay Thai fight at Bangkok’s Rajadamnern Boxing Stadium.

“The prime minister is confident that the activities during Apec Economic Leaders’ Week will immediately create momentum to drive tourism. This is high season, so foreign tourists are expected to choose Thailand as their destination.”

According to a Nation Thailand report, the PM has called on tourism operators to maintain a high quality of service in order to attract more tourists and get back to pre-pandemic levels. To help things along, it’s understood the Tourism Ministry and Tourism Authority of Thailand plan to present more stimulus proposals to Cabinet, which, if approved, will come into effect after the New Year holiday.
