BANGKOK, Aug 21 — The Association of Thai Travel Agents (ATTA) is set to support the Thai Tourism 2015 Campaign recently initiated by the military-led National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO).

ATTA president Sisdivachr Cheewarattanaporn told journalists on Thursday regarding the NCPO-initiated Thai Tourism 2015 campaign that the association is ready to coordinate with the Ministry of Tourism and Sports to support the smooth running of the campaign

He said further talks with other agencies would be held to discuss tourism-related strategies and activities for next year after the new minister of tourism and sports is formerly appointed.

Mr Sisdivachr expected the next minister of tourism and sports to understand tourism and tourist behaviour in order for the ministry to develop marketing plans to reach different target groups as well as to improve tourist attractions across the country.

Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), meanwhile, said that it would announce the details the campaign in a press conference later on as talks on tourism plans and activities remain inconclusive.
