The Tourism Council of Thailand (TCT) aims to establish the Tourism Labor Bank assistance program by March for tourism workers suffering from the impact of the new COVID-19 pandemic.

TCT’s president Chamnan Srisawat said the council will develop a tourism employment database to estimate the impact from the future crisis and seek effective measures to prevent more job losses in the tourism segment as 2 million workers could lose their jobs from the fresh outbreak.

He said unemployed tourism workers can join training for upskilling and reskilling in useful topics such as online marketing and languages, with support for daily expenses.
