Tourism and Sports Minister Phipat Ratchakitprakarn said he will meet with Labour Minister Suchart Chomklin this week to seek ways of shielding the hard-hit tourism sector from fresh Covid-19 fallout.

 

He said he might propose that the government co-pay the monthly salaries of employees in the sector. The planned measure will cover workers with salaries of up to Bt15,000, though the co-payment period has yet to be finalised.

 

"A number of tourism business operators are suffering and might have to shut down. Helping them retain jobs is a move that must be taken immediately without waiting for the end of the outbreak," Phipat said.
