Thailand and Myanmar kick off joint familiarisation trip

first_imgThe Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) and the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism, Myanmar have launched the Mega Joint Familiarisation Trip between Thailand and Myanmar.The project aims to promote tourism products and services in Thailand and Myanmar to long-haul European and United States travellers.The event comes as the two neighbours move towards full implementation of the ASEAN Economic Community or AEC at the end of this year.The joint familiarisation trip from 14-21 May marks the launch of the bilateral tourism cooperation and welcomes over 50 tour operators and media from Europe and the US.Thailand Minister of Tourism and Sports H.E. Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul said the event is one initiative to promote tourism growth in ASEAN.“Many parts of ASEAN have never really been opened to the eyes of the world before, and by forming bilateral tourism cooperation with our ASEAN friends, we will be able to open up unseen, untapped, beautiful tourism destinations altogether,” Ms Wattanavrangkul said.“As such, international tourists who come to visit Thailand will also be able to extend their vacation to explore the charming culture and various world-renowned tourist attractions in our neighbouring countries.”Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand is the host city for this joint trip due to its modern infrastructure, easy accessibility, variety of tourism products and international standards of service.The familiarisation trip comes under the ‘ASEAN for all’ dimension, in which Thailand has made agreements with, and is set to form tourism cooperation with other ASEAN neighbours.TAT executive director Europe, Africa and Middle East Region Tanes Petsuwan, said the launch of the bilateral agreement with Myanmar is a win-win situation for both countries.“It will also allow us to tap the potential of the many long holiday weekends to attract short-stay but high-spending traffic from the neighbouring countries, which are all within three to four hours flying time of each other, similar to European countries,” Mr Petsuwan said.Source = ETB Travel News: Brittney Levinsonlast_img read more
