ICAO: Asean's Airports Subpar for Tourist Economy

April 28--Asean countries need to accelerate investment in basic infrastructure development to accommodate the 6.5% annual growth in international tourist arrivals, says the head of International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).
"Despite Asean being featured as the fastest-growing tourism market in the world, the region still lacks proper airports to support an adequate tourism economy, including Thailand and Indonesia," ICAO regional director Arun Mishra said yesterday on the second day of a global travel and tourism summit in Bangkok.
