THE TOURISM Authority of Thailand (TAT) has appointed Runjuan Tongrut as the director for its New Delhi office, effective February 3.
Runjuan, an experienced tourism marketing planner, will replace Chattan Kunjara Na Ayudhya, who will be returning to TAT head office in Bangkok to take up the position of director of International Public Relations Division.
Runjuan said: “South Asia is such a huge market that it is sometimes a challenge to consolidate the demands of our partners and effectively respond to them. I am hoping that my planning background will enable me to guide and support them whenever it is called for.”
TAT said in a statement that it was “reassessing its strategy to focus more on travel trade and corporate partnerships” in India, especially in view of the burgeoning Indian tourist market to Thailand.
