The Japanese government expects 40 million foreign visitors during the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics next year, according to International Olympic Committee member Khunying Patama Leesawastrakul.

She said the Games will stimulate Japan’s tourism and economy, with foreigners expected to spend 8 trillion yen (Bt2.35 trillion) during their stay.

“Seventeen per cent of cities outside Tokyo have already started public-relations activities, while 42 per cent plan to do so before the Games start next year,” Patama said.
