8:19 am
it comes a day after an arabian scientist serious scarring arrived back in iran after being freed from a u.s. prison. thailand's capital bangkok was names of the world's most visited city and 2019 with 40000000 visitors tourism is often referred to as the engine driving the country's economy but with the status of global travel and the time of this pandemic that engine is now running on empty out scott hyla is in bangkok scott thailand has now been easing restrictions probably in the hope i believe that it will helping businesses back to talk us through the strategy going on here. absolutely you know we're enough phase 3 that started on monday of this week and this is the latest round of the relaxation of these restrictions because of covert 1000 number the lot of the more packed areas if you will around the tourist season we're in chinatown here in the capital bangkok because of that this is one of those
8:20 am
destinations they are slowly starting to loosen the restrictions here though anyone coming into facilities like where the shrine here they will have to scan a barcode and register before they come in and get their temperature taken now this is something that you know is really kind of the preparation because right now thailand is still sealed no international arrivals are going to come in into at least the end of this month but the government has put together a plan they think that will bring foreign tourists of important foreign tourist dollars back into the country eventually thailand's natural beauty and luxury resorts draw visitors from all over the world and from all walks of life at least it did before kobe had 19 its hotels and beaches now sit empty. the global shutdown has exposed the country's huge economic reliance on the travel industry one that will never be the same after the pandemic and wooing back foreign tourists is not going to be easy but the government has a plan. it's growing the marketing message beyond amazing thailand it's now focused
8:21 am
on driving home the idea that the country is one of the safest and cleanest places to visit and launched a health and safety certification program for travel companies or tourists want to know now yes how beautiful the destination is but also is it safe to go there i think safety would be the main concern and if we can give them confidence and have a good stand it it won't be hot when back to. the certification program covers a wide range of cleaning procedures and regulations on how to protect staff and the public the thai hotel group on atara has already received certification for one of its bangkok properties at its beach resort in who when they see the certificate as an important credential to have but it's what happens after that's critical. the execution of the standards is key. in terms of the manuals and the process and the standards that's all very well but it's the day to day interaction
8:22 am
and delivery from the people that will make the difference. despite having the 1st case of covert 1000 outside of china thailand has maintained low infection rates and quickly flattened its curve community cooperation and containment measures worked the government now wants to capitalize on that as it calculates reopening bangkok souvenir boom airport here is the country's biggest and busiest over 80 percent of the $65000000.00 passengers last year were international but now it's been reduced to just a trickle of domestic and repatriation flights it's going to stay that way at least until the end of june when the international arrivals ban is lifted it was put in place back in early april with millions of jobs on the line thailand needs to see its airports busy again. but it will be a slow and steady opening if there is any increase in covert $900.00 cases any progress in building travelers confidence could come crashing down. so the stasi the focus right now for the tourist industry is domestic travelers know that
8:23 am
something that the government is using kind of as a gear up if you will you know the certificate program is in place so they're hoping that hotels and other tour companies can use this as a time to work out any kinks in to make sure that this is what's going to correct the situation to then eventually invite those foreign tourists back in again as we said in that story you know that's not going to happen it until the earliest until the end of this month and then again there's going to be a staged process before tourists can start flooding back here into thailand and they're not expecting that to really come in till the 4th quarter if it all this year to see any foreign tourist recovery and they're going to focus they say on european and north american markets that it's not scott high that watching all those developments for us in bangkok thank you very much. libya's u.n. recognized government says it's regained full control of the capital tripoli ending the year long siege by forces loyal to war on the 4 hafta that have those military command says the battle isn't over and that it's been moving fires as outside of

threatened by environmental destruction for the african elephant it's more than just poaching for the ivory trade we're also facing big big challenges when it comes to happen that accusation transformation for larger industries and of course the biggest impact that is less talked about which is the increasing population of africans and therefore the competing nature of land between people and it's when the ever decreasing frontier between wildlife and humans is breached disease like corona virus can jump from animals to people. out of the $7200000.00 species that we have on the planet about $1000000.00 species are under threat from extinction and that's a lot because nature is this finely attuned by diversifying its human system where each one. plays a role in the bigger puzzle who we've known to use clearly one of these messages
