Thailand vows to restore tourist confidence after mall shooting

A shooting spree at a luxury shopping mall in Bangkok, Thailand, resulted in the deaths of two foreigners, one from China and the other from Myanmar, and left five others injured. In response, Thai officials are determined to restore confidence in the country’s critical tourism sector. Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin, who took office in August, emphasized implementing the highest safety measures for tourists. China, a major source of foreign visitors to Thailand, is crucial to the country’s tourism recovery efforts. The government recently introduced visa-free entry for Chinese nationals to address safety concerns and facilitate travel. However, the shooting incident has raised concerns about tourism safety and may impact Thailand’s reputation in the eyes of potential visitors. Thailand aims to attract 29 million visitors this year, but the slow recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic has made this goal challenging.
