Ambassadors to be invited to ‘Sufficiency Economy’ fam trip

PHUKET: Phuket officials are preparing to welcome foreign ambassadors, consuls and other diplomatic staff, accompanied by their partners, on a field trip to study Royal Initiative projects and learn about the potential and achievements of Thailand in terms of sustainable development and environmental friendliness according to the philosophy of sufficiency economy.

Phuket Governor Narong Woonciew led a meeting at Phuket Provincial Hall today (Mar 21) to discuss the preparations.

The fam trip will be held across Phang Nga and Krabi from Thursday, Mar 30, to Saturday, Apr 1, said an official report of the meeting.

The Department of Protocol at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs had arranged the fam trip for foreign diplomatic emissaries and their spouses “to disseminate the royal duties of the Thai monarchy in enhancing the quality of life and well-being of the people as well as promoting knowledge and understanding about Thailand in many dimensions, especially the way of life of the Thai community and economic potential and tourism in both provinces”, said the report.

The fam trip will also serve as a platform to garner support for Phuket’s bid to host Expo 2028, the report added.

The dignitaries will be treated to a presentation by the Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) about Thailand’s bid for Phuket to host the expo as well as other activities to welcome the ambassadors at Nai Yang Beach in Sirinat National Park.

Phuket’s Young Ambassadors, who met Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha during his visit on Sunday, will also lend a hand facilitating the VIPs stay on the island, the report added.

Phang Nga and Krabi maybe....Phukets "sufficiency economy" based on tourism did clearly not work under Covid-19.......

@Pascale. Don't be too hard on Kurt, hes very old and a bit eeerrrr........misguided.  There but for the Grace of God...etc. 

Pascale | 23 March 2023 - 09:46:06

@Kurt  Still you are not able to read and understand. Read the following part of the article:  "The Department of Protocol....in both provinces". As usual you just keep twisting it but it still doesn't make sense. And "acid reacting"? That is usually your department ! Maybe less vinegar for breakfast may be helpful.

Kurt | 23 March 2023 - 01:45:50

It is about Phuket. Phuket Officials are preparing/welcoming. We read about phuket Governor, not read about Governors of Phang Ngan and Krabi provinces. The field trip includes 2 days other provinces besides Phuket. So, perhaps a bit distraction away from Phuket pollution and dirt around? Acid-reacting Pascale can go back in his loft. Nothing contributing.

Pascale | 22 March 2023 - 12:50:12

The serial moaner is back with a vengeance and again he fails to read and understand an article correctly. It's not about Phuket but about Krabi and Phang Nga ! They did not get invited by Phuket officials !

Phuket lacks sustainable development, environmental 'friendliness'. Sufficient philosophy (thinking) economy? It are all Thai grabbed together empty phrases. All nonsense sales talk.

Kurt | 22 March 2023 - 10:50:52

We see a tendency that Phuket Officialdom try to trick/use foreign diplomats for purpose of Phuket tourism market benefits. It did started when Patong Police  were visiting on own initiative foreign Consuls. Irony is that these RTP visiters are now removed from their Patong Station to inactive 'positions'! Consuls live on Phuket, Ambassadors come here regular. So, what for this?

Sustainable development and environmental friendliness! 55555 These people are delusional. Every piece of land is in the process of being developed. The roads are packed with traffic and in many cases cannot be made wider. Raw sewage flows into the sea, garbage is dumped everywhere. Drive on any backroad and see fly tipping and pop-up garbage dumps. So environmentally friendly!
