TAT voices support for Emergency Decree withdrawalSeptember 15th, 2008 - 2:52 pm ICT by Amrit Rashmisrisethi
Governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand, Phornsiri Manoharn (พรศิริ มโนหาญ), voices support for the government’s decision to lift Emergency Decree in Bangkok as it helps make foreign tourists understand that Thailand’s situation is not out of control.
Mrs Phornsiri says foreign tourists were concerned over security during the period when Emergency Decree was enforced in the capital and many of them canceled their trips to Thailand, especially those from China. The governor says further that TAT has informed its branches abroad to explain the country’s situation to foreign tourists and inform them of the revocation of Emergency Decree in Bangkok.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of foreign Affairs has sent faxes concerning withdrawal of the State of Emergency in Bangkok to 92 foreign embassies in a bid to boost Thailand’s image.
