PHUKET: -- Preserving the state of Phuket’s beaches, public transport and public security and safety were identified as key issues at the top of the Phuket Governor’s agenda in safe-guarding the island’s long-term prospects as a major tourism destination.

 

Phuket Governor Norraphat Plodtong ordered officials to be better armed with information in order to address the key issues at a meeting held at Phuket Provincial Hall yesterday (May 22).

 

“I want every one to update the information they have, such as the number of public transport (drivers and vehicles) and information about the beaches in their areas, so they can come up with effective solutions to the problems they are facing,” Gov Norraphat told a bevy of high-ranking officials at the meeting.

 

Also present was Army Region 4 Deputy Commander Maj Gen Pornsak Poonsawat, who offered praise for progress on some key issues, but marked more work remained to be done.

 

“In the past three months, good progress has been made on several key issues that affect tourism. For this I have to thank every officer involved for doing a good job,” he said.

 

Gen Ponsak noted that progress was being made in clearing Surin Beach of any “encroachers”.

 

The beach is to be maintained in an appropriate manner to honour the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who graced the sands there on March 9, 1959, Gen Pornsak said.

 

“Nobody is allowed to ‘take benefit’ (sic) in the area. Now this is in the process of law enforcement,” he said.

 

Regarding other beaches in Phuket, Gen Pornsak noted, “Eight beaches have been set with 10% zones (where vendors may operate). The other beach is Bang Tao Beach, which is now undergoing the process of setting out an area for people (vendors) affected from the arrangement (now banned from serving on the sand).”
