Tourism minister asks Cabinet to grant extra holiday days to government officials to boost tourism

Tourism and Sports Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn said he would ask the Cabinet today (Tuesday) to grant an extra two-day holiday to government officials and state enterprise employees to boost tourism.

Phiphat said he would ask the Cabinet to consider the proposal during the weekly Cabinet meeting.

The minister said he would ask the Cabinet to allow officials to take two days leave in October without counting the time off as the annual leave.

The minister expressed confidence that the extra holidays, if approved, would support the government’s “tasting, shopping and utilizing” project that encourages shops to register with the tourism ministry to promote tourism.
