๐Ÿ”ฅ Thailand aims to restore tourist confidence after mall shooting ๐Ÿ”ฅ -------------------------------- โŒโŒโŒ Thailand will restore confidence in its critical tourism sector, officials said on Wednesday, a day after a shooting spree at a luxury shopping mall in which two foreigners were killed clouded hopes for a recovery in overseas visitors. โœ” Police have arrested a teenager suspected of unleashing a volley of gunfire at the Siam Paragon mall in Bangkok's commercial heart on Tuesday, killing two women, one from China and the other from Myanmar, and wounding five people. โœ” The shooting came as new Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin is trying to bolster tourism, a key driver of Southeast Asia's second largest economy that has been slow to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. โœ” China is vital to that effort as the biggest source of foreign visitors to Thailand in pre-COVID years. โœ” Srettha's administration last month introduced visa-free entry for Chinese nationals to facilitate travel and help overcome what Thailand had said were unfounded worries about safety. โœ” Thapanee Kiatphaibool, governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand, said government agencies would do even more to restore confidence. โœ” "We need to improve security in all areas for Thai and foreign tourists," she told reporters without outlining any specific steps. โœ” Srettha, a property developer who was elected prime minister in August, said in a social media post late on Tuesday that his government would "implement the highest safety measures" for tourists.
