BANGKOK, Sept 30 (Reuters) - Thailand is expected to have
50,000 foreign tourists in the fourth quarter of 2020, down
99.5% from a year earlier, an industry body said on Wednesday,
as the government seeks to gradually reopen the country.
Foreign tourist receipts are seen at 4.5 billion baht
($142.09 million) in the quarter, down 99% year-on-year, the
Tourism Council of Thailand said in a statement.
Thailand has had no foreign tourists since April but is due
to start receiving its first foreign vacationers next week to
help its key tourism sector devastated by coronavirus travel
($1 = 31.6700 baht)
