H.E. Mr. Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn, Thailand’s Minister of Tourism and Sports, said that the meetings will discuss the tourism direction after the COVID-19 crisis in the Asia-Pacific region to revitalise tourism in the region for the better, which the deliverable results will be reported at the APEC Leaders’ Summit. 

 

The tourism sector will reflect on the restorative strategy of the Thai economy by focusing on promoting tourism while paying heed to safety and health and providing service quality and consistency, and most importantly, supporting responsible tourism under the 5 factors of safe tourism: clean, love the environment, fair, and sustainable or “Safe – Clean – Green – Fair – Sustainable.”

 

As the host country, Thailand is aiming to push forward the APEC Policy Recommendations on Regenerative Tourism, in order to reinstate the tourism industry to contribute to local wellbeings and businesses. This is in line with the Royal Thai Government’s Bio-Circular-Green or BCG Economy Model, which is being used to revive Thailand’s tourism industry with the aim for safe, inclusive, and sustainable travel. The BCG Economy Model capitalises on Thailand’s strengths in biological diversity and cultural richness, and conforms to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The arrangement of the event will be environmentally conscious and embrace the use and presentation of local products, which reflect creativity and local wisdom knowledge.
