Thailand Forecasts 30 Million Foreign Tourists in 2023

National —

The Tourism Industry Council of Thailand predicted to see more than 30 million tourists traveling to Thailand throughout 2023, pumping 3 trillion baht into the country’s economic circulation.

Chamnan Srisawat, the council chairman, stated on Tuesday January 31st, that Thailand’s tourism was on an upward trend and was recovering rapidly. He expected that more than 30 million international tourists, which was closing the gap to the pre-outbreak level of 40 million in 2019, would visit the country in 2023.

The challenging issue now was to restrengthen the private sector battered by the pandemic. Chamnan said that the private sector still needed supportive funding, labor, knowledge, and innovation to welcome the return of tourists in this booming year.

The chairman believed that tourist demand in 2023 would double that of last year, adding all government agencies should treat this matter like it was a national agenda.
