Thailand and Singapore have signed an agreement to work together to promote tourism in a bid to tighten bilateral relations and strengthen regional cooperation, a senior official from the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) announced.
Mrs. Phornsiri Manohan, TAT`s Deputy Governor for International Marketing, said that the deal between the TAT and the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) had been signed as part of the recent Singapore-Thailand Enhanced Economic Relationship (STEER) meeting.
Under the agreement, the two countries will promote each other as a first choice vacation destination for their respective citizens, and will work together to promote tourism in the Indian market.
Mrs. Phornsiri said that the two agencies had also signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on the exchange of knowledge and expertise on the development of tours and packaged tours, with links forged between tourist destinations in both countries.
Thailand and Singapore would also engage in joint investment in the service sector, with the Department of Export Promotion overseeing investment in spas, healthcare, Thai restaurants and One Tambon, One Product (OTOP) goods, she said.
