“When tourists choose to travel by boat, it is the responsibility of boat officers or caretakers to provide safety,” Sakchai said. “Therefore, training boat personnel to be prepared is a necessity. I believe that collaboration between the public sector and private sector will result in providing efficient help to tourists and safe tourism.”
