The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has launched a marketing campaign to net about 69 billion USD from both local and foreign visitors by 2015.

Thailand’s English-language newspaper “The Nation” quoted TAT Governor Thawatchai Arunyik as saying reportedly that the authority expects up to 28.9 million foreign visitors next year.

He said foreign arrivals to Thai will be 26 million this year, generating 44 billion USD in revenue to the sector, up 15 percent year-on-year.

TAT has also lined up action plans and strategies for local and international markets under the long-running "Amazing Thailand" campaign.-VNA
