Collaborating in support of the event are Kathu Municipality, the Phuket Tourist Association, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Phuket office, and the Consulate of the Republic of Indonesia, located in Songkhla.

“The aim of the event is to contribute to the promotion of tourism between Thailand and Indonesia in the context of Asean,” explained PSU lecturer Tanawat Wongluksanapan.

Bhuritt Maswongssa, President of the Phuket chapter of the Tourism Council of Thailand(TCT), will present his summary on the state of tourism in Thailand, while Dr Mutmainnah Mustofa of the Universitas Islam Malang (UNISMA) will present his summary on tourism in Indonesia.

The seminar will conclude with a group panel discussion led by two representatives from each nation.

According to the Thai Department of Tourism, international arrivals from Indonesia ranked 18th in 2015, with 469,226 people arriving from Thailand’s Asean neighbour.

Meanwhile, promoting community-based tourism has been identified as one of the key objectives in the government’s Tourism Strategy 2015-2017 in its efforts to achieve B2.5 billion in tourism revenue, as it aims to achieve wealth distribution and increase “Quality of Life and Strengthen Community” by end of year 2017.

Community‐based Tourism is also part of the government’s “Social Disparity Reduction” policy, with 145 communities to be targeted for development in tourism products, knowledge and infrastructure.

Attendance to the seminar is limited to 100 attendees. To register, visit here.

Indonesian snacks and lunch will be provided free.
