Thailand has launched its bid to host the World Specialized Expo 2028.
According to Deputy Government Spokesperson Traisuree Taisaranakul, Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul, together with delegates from various agencies, presented to the Bureau of International Expositions (BIE) in Paris on Sunday (June 19) Thailand’s bid to host the Specialized Expo. The government submitted its letter of candidature to host the event to the BIE on January 7.
The deputy spokesperson said Phuket province has been designated as the proposed location for the Special Expo, as officials intend to promote the island province as well as the nation as both a medical hub and medical tourism destination.
