“I will be moving to Surin Province in Isan (Northeast Thailand) to take up the post of Vice Governor on Oct 10,” current Phuket Vice Governor Chokdee Amornwat told The Phuket News today (Oct 6).
“Vice Governor Kajornkiet Rakpanitmanee will go to Nakhon Sri Thammarat to take up the same position there,” he added.

V/Gov Chokdee said he was looking forward to being a Vice Governor of Surin, and assured that he and V/Gov Kajornkiet would pass on all projects under their management for the new Vice Governors to take over.
“For me, there are three main areas that I want them to continue to develop and organise: Surin Beach; transportation in Phuket Town; and vehicle rentals,” he concluded.
