Travel & tourism from Africa to Thailand

  • Published by Vedat
Travel & tourism from Africa to Thailand is expected to be a major beneficiary of the Thai-African Strategic Partnership announced during Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra’s visit to Mozambique, Uganda and Tanzania during July 28-August 2, 2013.

Launching the partnership at a banquet speech in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, Prime Minister Yingluck said that Asia and Africa need to “work more closely together to enhance people-to-people links, from more tourism to greater cultural and youth exchanges between the two regions.”

She visited Mozambique during July 28-29, Tanzania during July 30 -31 and Uganda on August 1 and she was accompanied by a 60-strong delegation of private sector representatives from various industry sectors, including tourism, energy, agriculture, construction, textiles, gems and jewellery, and automotive assembly.

The three African countries have high economic potential, are rich in natural resources such as natural gas, minerals and fishery, and have extensive opportunities for exchange of knowledge and experiences in agriculture, public health, academia and management of national parks, and wildlife conservation.

Her trip was the first official visit by a Thai Prime Minister to any African country in eight years. In fact, her visit to Mozambique was the first by a Thai Government leader since the establishment of bilateral diplomatic relations in 1989.

In all three countries, PM Yingluck met with the highest levels of leadership, including Mozambican President Armando Guebuza, Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete and Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni. A series of agreements were signed in all countries to promote trade, investment, cultural and academic contacts.
