The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has launched its new marketing concept ‘Open to the New Shades of Amazing Thailand’ in India. Yuthasak Supasorn, the TAT Governor, headed the Thai tourism team at the launch event held at JW Marriott Aerocity in New Delhi. It was attended by several senior executives from Indian travel companies, travel media and invited guests from the business community.In his product presentation, Tanes Petsuwan, Deputy Governor for Marketing Communication, TAT, said, “The Open to the New Shades concept is about asking visitors to ‘open’ their minds and hearts to deepen and widen their experiences into a new perception of attractions and variety of experiences in Thailand.”The communication campaign will introduce brand-new products to visitors, or reveal a new charming character of well-known destinations through creativity. This campaign is aimed at attracting more repeat visitors and also first-time visitors. Visitors can discover new perspectives on existing attractions, or indulge in unique experiences in new tourist attractions. Tanes outlined the broad variety of tourism products that Indian visitors will enjoy in the categories of Gastronomy, Nature and Beach, Art and Craft, and Thai Culture and Way of Life.All guests also enjoyed a live music performance by Koh Saxman, a famous Thai saxophonist along with an Indian musician. Guests also witnessed a demonstration of Thai culture such as the coloring a Khon Mask, painting Thai pattern on the hand, fruit & vegetable carving and stage performances (Muay Thai and Thai Classical Dance).Yuthasak said, “India is now one of our top ten sources of visitor arrivals, a member of a small club of countries that generate more than one million visitors a year. In 2017, Thailand recorded 1.41 million visitor arrivals from India, up by 18% over 2016, generating an estimated 120 billion Rupees (62.40 billion baht) in tourism income. We are targeting a revenue growth of 12% for Indian market in 2018. More and more Indian travellers are diversifying beyond their traditional spots of Bangkok and Pattaya, and exploring Chiang Rai, Rayong, Trat, Hua Hin and Samut Songkram. In 2018, bilateral business and MICE travel is expected to increase as India’s economy grows and new airlines launch more bilateral flights. The completion of the Asian Highway road linkage through Myanmar will allow a whole new generation of travellers to open up new corridors of travel between South and Southeast Asia.”TAT is also targetting a new wave of visitors from secondary cities in India. Given the large number of Indian cities with a population base of more than three million people, India is seen as being a major source of visitors for Thailand in the years ahead.
This is part of the KHN Morning Briefing, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations. Sign up for an email subscription. The Wall Street Journal reports that federal officials have sent a “nudging” email to consumers who haven’t picked a plan yet. And the New York Times examines how the push to expand health coverage has taken the shape of a number of very different and uneven individual efforts instead of “a sweeping federal overhaul.” Meanwhile, NPR notes that the state specific figures may turn out to be more important than the national sign up total. The Wall Street Journal: Talk Turns To Penalties As Obamacare Deadline NearsThe agency in charge of the health-law enrollment effort has learned to love the individual mandate as a way of getting consumers to sign up for health insurance. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service (CMS) sent a nudging email Wednesday to users of HealthCare.gov who have applied for coverage but haven’t yet picked a plan. The message: Hurry up (Radnofsky, 3/27).The New York Times: Deadline Near, Health Signups Show DisparityThe disparities reveal a stark truth about the Affordable Care Act: With the first open enrollment period set to end Monday, six months after its troubled online exchanges opened for business, the program widely known as Obamacare looks less like a sweeping federal overhaul than a collection of individual ventures playing out unevenly, state to state, in the laboratories of democracy (Stolberg and Pear, 3/27).Marketplace: Latinos Still Reluctant To Sign Up For ObamacareVisits to healthcare.gov are surging in these last days before the Affordable Care Act enrollment deadline. But government officials are worried that they aren’t getting enough of the right people to sign up. Latinos in particular are sorely needed to balance insurance pools. They tend to be younger and healthier than the general population. But states with the largest concentration of Latinos — like California — have been struggling to win them over. “The news gives a lot of information, [but] it confuses people. They don’t know what is the truth,” says Larissa Bobadilla, a health outreach worker in Los Angeles. Many Latinos are afraid that if they sign up for health insurance, their undocumented family members will get discovered, and deported. Others aren’t convinced it’s worth the money (Dembosky, 3/27). NPR: Obamacare’s National Enrollment Looks OK, But States Matter MoreWith this year’s deadline to register for individual health insurance just a weekend away, much attention is being lavished on two numbers — the 6 million Americans who have signed up so far, and the percentage of those folks who are (or aren’t) young. But experts say the national numbers actually don’t mean very much (Rovner, 3/28).St. Louis Post Dispatch: Insurance Deadline Extension Brings Relief, FrustrationFor months, the Obama administration insisted the final deadline for individuals to sign up for insurance on the health exchanges wouldn’t be extended. Well, they went back on that vow — at least somewhat (Kulash, 3/27). Beyond The Health Law Enrollment Numbers, State-By-State Disparities, Penalties Draw Headlines
