This was one of the main agreements made at the high-level meeting between Philippines Department of Tourism Secretary Christina Garcia Frasco and Thailand Ministry of Tourism and Sports Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn last Thursday (18 August).

During the meeting, the Thai Tourism Minister said that now that travel restrictions have been lifted and tourism activities have resumed, there is a shortage of workers in the Thai tourism industry. There are 60 percent of open positions from hotel staff to middle managers.

There is a preference for professionals from the Philippines, Minister Ratchakitprakarn said. He pointed out that Filipinos speak English very well, which is a must for helping Thailand’s growing number of foreign tourists and guests.

“Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, there aren’t as many people working in tourism as there used to be. I’m currently talking with the Philippine Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), and we’ve agreed to hold joint job fairs all over the Philippines that are geared toward the tourism industry. This is to make sure that people who left the industry or were let go because of the pandemic will have another chance to find work “During the meeting, Secretary Frasco said something.

Together with partner local government units (LGUs) and incoming Thai counterparts, DOT and DOLE are putting on a tourism job fair called “Trabaho Turismo Asenso!” from September 22 to 24.


Secretary Frasco said that she invited Thailand to join the job fair series so that Filipinos who want to work in the hotel and restaurant industry in Thailand would have more chances to do so. The Thai Minister was happy to accept the invitation, and he confirmed that his country would be at the job fair.

Secretary Frasco said that the DOT, through its Regional Offices, is also doing surveys of the number of job openings, job titles, and other information about job postings in each part of the country to find more local jobs.

Accommodation Establishments, Travel and Tour Services, Meetings, Incentives, Conventions, and Exhibitions (MICE) facilities and organizers, Tourist Transport Operators, Health and Wellness Services, Restaurant/Food Service, and other Tourism-Related Establishments are among the DOT-accredited businesses that are expected to attend the career fair.
