BANGKOK (Xinhua): Thailand's southern seaside province of Krabi is gearing up plans to clean up the province and restore natural resources so the province can open its door for business.

The move came after Krabi Governor Kitibhodi Prawit told the media on Tuesday (May 12)that he had already met with the private sector, tourism-related organisations and local state agencies.

"Krabi's number of Covid-19 cases have been dwindling, and with that, all parties have agreed to the resumption of tourism-related businesses at Krabi," said the governor.

The tourist island has been under lockdown since April 10.

Since then Krabi had sealed its borders in an attempt to curb the spread of the outbreak.

"New disease prevention and safety measures will be imposed when the next tourist season begins later this year," he said.

The governor did not however, set a date to re-open its border. - Xinhua
