BANGKOK, 19 Oct 2013 (NNT) – The Prime Minister has set a target that Thailand will earn 2 trillion baht from the tourism industry by the year 2015, while focusing on safety of the tourists.

Prime Minister and Defense Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, during “PM Yingluck Meets the People” program on NBT, mentioned that as Thailand’s target is to reach revenue of 2 trillion baht from the tourism industry in 2015, the government will speed up its process in developing all major tourist attractions and transportation routes, as well as getting all relevant agencies involved in providing safety for the tourists. She added that the government is keen on connecting Thailand with its neighboring countries through auspicious events such as the renowned Naga Fireball festival and the Illuminated Boat Procession festival.

PM Yingluck went on to elaborate on the government’s safety measures for tourists, saying more policemen will be deployed in travel places, whereas closed circuit televisions or CCTVs will be put up in all cities across Thailand.

The PM is also keen to help locals and officials improve their English language, so that when they come across a foreigner who might be in trouble, he or she will be able to communicate and quickly react to certain situations.

Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.
