Jakarta (Indonesia) – September 14, 2016 (travelindex.com) – Thailand sees the stepped up process of ASEAN integration as a major opportunity to attract more visitors to ASEAN, according to Mrs. Titiporn Manenate, Director of International Public Relations, Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT).
Addressing a media briefing at the PATA Travel Mart 2016, which took place from 7 to 9 September at the International Convention Exhibition, Greater Jakarta, Indonesia, Mrs. Titiporn noted that this is a very special event because it is the first PTM since the launch of the ASEAN integration process in 2016, and comes just before ASEAN marks its 50th anniversary in 2017.
In January to July, 2016, Thailand welcomed 19.5 million international tourists, up nearly 12 percent, generating around 27.5 billion US dollars (973 billion Baht), up 16.5 percent.
