BANGKOK, April 16 (TNA) – Harsh COVID-19 control measures can start to revive tourism in May at the soonest, said the Tourism Authority of Thailand governor.
TAT governor Yuthasak Supasorn said that tourism will be affected if the government introduces measures to restrict travels and crowd gatherings to curb the novel coronavirus spread in the country.
Optimistically if disease control measures are effective as public health authorities expect, tourism can start to improve in May at the soonest, he said.
That would coincide with the third phase of the We Travel Together tourist subsidy scheme which would start to register applicants on May 7 and the Tour Tiew Thai stimulus program, which is for packaged tours also set to begin in May, Mr Yuthasak said. (TNA)
