PACC takes action on abuse complaints from foreigners | Bangkok Post: news PACC takes action on abuse complaints from foreigners NEWSPAPER SECTION: NEWS | WRITER: KING-OUA LAOHONG Around 30 complaints have been submitted to the Public Sector Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) by foreign tourists and business operators claiming they were badly treated by Thai authorities. PACC secretary-general Korntip Daroj said Thursday of the 30 complaints, two have been probed by disciplinary sub-panels set up by the agency on Wednesday. The first case involved Sa-ngob Homsombat and Pairot Thinno, two former City Hall tessakit (city inspectors) who demanded money from a tourist in the Klong Lod area of Bangkok's Phra Nakhon district in 2016. City Hall later sacked the two officials. "Despite their dismissal, the PACC will still proceed with disciplinary and legal action against both of them," he said. The second is related to Australian tourists who were physically assaulted in Phuket's Kratu district in 2015. Australian authorities later sought help from the PACC regarding the case. Lt Col Korntip said all complaints were lodged with the agency's complaint centre which was established under a bilateral agreement with the Hong Kong-based Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC). The centre aims to provide assistance to foreigners, particularly business operators, who face problems in Thailand.

Some Advice On No-nonsense Products
SEOUL, June 21 (Yonhap) –– The state-run Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) said Thursday it will hold a promotional road show in major Chinese cities next week to bring back Chinese incentive group visitors. The MICE -- meeting, incentive travel, convention, exhibition and event –– road show will be held in Guangzhou on Monday, Beijing on Wednesday and Shenyang on June 29, according to KTO officials. It will be the first such official event in the neighboring country since China prohibited group tours to South Korea in retaliation over a diplomatic row in March last year. More than 20 tourism-related agencies and businesses from South Korea's leading cities and provincial governments will take part in the road show, meeting with decision makers at Chinese travel agencies that handle incentive travel through consultation sessions and presentations over dinner. Chinese visitors used to account for nearly half of all travelers to South Korea before the diplomatic spat over Korea's hosting of a U.S. missile defense system on its soil. April statistics, reflecting partial lifting of China's travel ban, showed that the number of Chinese travelers to Korea gained 60.9 percent on-year. "Restoring the network between businesses is as important as permission from Chinese authorities in order for Korea's market for Chinese incentive travel to quickly recover," Park Chul-beom, head of meeting incentive team at KTO, said. "KTO plans to encourage incentive trips to Korea by a large number of companies by using this road show as an opportunity for exchanging active, updated information between firms and travel agencies of the two countries."
