Phuket Governor hears Ukraine embassy call for longer tourist stays

PHUKET: The First Secretary of the Ukrainian Embassy in Thailand, Dr Oleksandr Zub, yesterday during a meeting with Phuket Governor Chockchai Dejamornthan called for longer stays for Ukrainian visitors to Thailand as way to help boost income generated from tourism.

Dr Zub met with Governor Chockchai at Phuket Provincial Hall yesterday (Mar 17) to discuss ways of improving bilateral relations between Thailand and Ukraine.

“We would like to see the Thai Government extend the length of time that Ukrainian tourists can stay to enjoy their holidays. Each year more than 50,000 Ukrainian tourists come to Thailand. They like Thai food and Thai Boxing,” Dr Zub said.

Gov Chockchai in response noted, “Phuket is ready to support our government policy for good relations between Ukraine and Thailand. Phuket is an important economic province that generates good revenue from tourism.

“We focus on security of tourists, and Phuket is a ‘Smart City’ and we are in the process of building a light-rail (transport system) that will be operational within four years.

“As there are more Ukrainian tourists coming to Thailand, and Phuket, I recommend that a bilateral “letter of intent” be drafted as an initial step to formalising measures that will benefit both Thailand and Ukraine,” Gov Chockchai added,

yes, he has stated that tourism is a good earner for phuket. I find it hard to believe that he can use the word security and smart city in the same sentence as phuket without bursting out laughing. the words phuket and safety should be in the dictionary as an oxymoron. And "smart city" pleeeease....any expat knows the answer to that !!
Sustainable tourism died 4 years ago. If the rich and powerful stopped fighting over the proceeds of corruption and focused on quality, safe and affordable tourism they will have bank accounts running over with honest money. hey, but its not the "asian way".

So, are the Ukrainians now going to get a different Thai Immigration 'time stay setting agreement', because they like the thai food and thai boxing?

Anyway, bilateral relations with Ukraine are handled in Bangkok ( Ministry of Foreign Affairs).
I don't think on Phuket, the talks were to diplomatic anyway, hahahaha.
Nothing substantial. Just that light rail idea for Phuket 'Smart City'.
Immigration is another department. Not Provincial business.
