Mr Hamzah Rahmat, Director
The Federation of ASEAN Travel Associations (FATA) is the umbrella body for national travel associations within the ASEAN region. The combined number of travel agents under FATA members exceeds 7,700 serving a population of over 622 million people in ASEAN.
FATA serves as a platform for members to discuss industry issues, address challenges and monitor trends, and engage with other organisations at the regional level to achieve the desired objectives. It provides a sense of ASEAN Community for individual travel agents operating in the region.
FATA’s vision is to contribute significantly to the growth and development of the travel and tourism industry in ASEAN and beyond. The mission is to provide effective advocacy in industry and government affairs, training, education and communications initiatives as well as marketing opportunities. The federation’s objective is to facilitate and contribute to the growth and development of the travel and tourism industry in ASEAN member countries, especially through the travel associations and private sector enterprises and businesses.
