TCT calls for decree to be lifted

- +

The Tourism Council of Thailand (TCT) has come out against the caretaker government's emergency decree, saying it is hurting tourism sentiment and will result in revenue losses of at least 82 billion baht in the first half of this year. 

The number of foreign visitors will drop by 1.8 million during this period, threatening the full-year arrival target of 28.1 million.

TCT members discussed the issue on Wednesday and agreed to call on the caretaker government to lift the decree immediately, saying the present situation of mass rallies does not justify the declaration of a state of emergency.
