Their winning plan was highly applauded for having successfully acquired and applied knowledge from training sessions to initiate action plans that can really be used in practice.
The Tourism Action Plan competition was arranged at the end of the 2015 Global Tourism Leader Training Program for Korea’s Fellow Countries. The competition required representatives from each country to propose tourism plans considering four factors: current tourism situation, analysis, strategic planning and action plans.
Mr. Yuthasak Supasorn, TAT Governor said, “This is great news that the tourism action plan proposed by our representatives was awarded the top prize. We are looking at ways to turn this strategic plan into action that can strengthen the competitiveness of Thailand’s tourism, and to further the promotion of Thailand’s tourism among international travellers.”
