Labour Minister Suchart Chomklin said Apec 2022, being held at Bangkok’s Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre all this week, provides a perfect showcase for Thailand’s soft power.

He said traditional Thai massage is well-known and can be used as a soft power to promote Thailand overseas.

Boonchob Suttamanaswong, Labour Ministry’s permanent secretary, said members not only is the service completely free, it is also part of a public relations campaign to educate non-Thai massage practitioners about Thailand’s traditional therapy.

Members of Thai and foreign press can get a neck and shoulder massage, or a hot stone treatment and also try out healthy herbal beverages. Also on offer is an introduction to herbal products used in spas
