ASEAN-LAOS/TOURISM
Regional group to set hospitality standards

The ten-member Association of Southeast Asian Natopns (Asean) plans set service standards in the tourism and hospitality sector through the development of a tourism curriculum for the region, according to a report in Asia News Network, an online news portal.

In a meeting in Vientianne, Laos, representatives from government and private sectors working in the tourism and hospitality sector discussed the final outputs of a Common Asean Tourism Curriculum prepared by regional representatives, supported by the Australian government through AusAID.

At the national workshop, the Soukaseum Bodhisane, Vice Chairman of the Lao National Tourism Administration, was quoted as saying the move was very important to the tourism industry of Laos and other Asean countries.

“A specific tourism curriculum will enable us to promote Asean tourism as well as the Asean cooperation framework in the hospitality sector.”

Laos is one of four new Asean member countries. To align with regional standards, Soukaseum said, the country needs to develop a curriculum in Laos to meet Asean standards in order to compete with other countries.
