Ministry of Tourism and Sports to step up measures for tourist safety

Tourism and Sports Ministry undersecretary Pongphanu Sawetroon said World Economic Forum had ranked Thailand 130th on a list of 141 nations for safety and security at tourist attractions.

That prompted the ministry to hold a meeting with the Tourist Police and other agencies to set guidelines for establishing safety and security measures for tourists.

The authorities are expected to see Thailand rank up on the World Economic Forum chart within one year, given the stepped-up measures for tourist safety.
