Thailand expects revenue from foreign tourists to rise 8.5 percent to 1.78 trillion baht ($49.8 billion) this year, a deputy prime minister said on Monday, reports Reuters.
The expected rise results from an improved outlook for global tourism as well as Thailand’s investment in infrastructure, Deputy Prime Minister Thanasak Patimaprakorn told reporters.
“This is another year that we will need to focus on quality tourism more than tourist numbers,” he said.
Last year, Thailand had 32.6 million visitors, a rise of nearly 9 percent from the year before.
