Last year, Thailand had ranked on Tier 2, just above the lowest ranking Tier 3.

Thailand has turned to “advocacy tourism” and is aiming at the tourism industry for best efforts in combatting the human trafficking issue, says a Thai government spokesperson. The government has announced that Thai airways have featured anti trafficking in flight videos on international routes since February.

An anti-trafficking Australian based group is also training hotel staff in Pattaya on sex trafficking signs. The Thai government hopes to move Thailand forward as a “quality destination” that is against sex tourism.
