Tourism minister to ask Cabinet to allow officials to take extra leave
Tourism and Sports Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn said he would ask the Cabinet today (Tuesday) to grant an extra two-day holiday to government officials and state enterprise employees to boost toursim.
Phiphat said he would ask the Cabinet to consider the proposal during the weekly Cabinet meeting.
The minister said he would ask the Cabinet to allow officials to take two days leave in October without counting the time off as the annual leave.
