The assurances came at a meeting held today (June 11) at the Phuket Provincial Police Station, which was presided over by Phuket Provincial Police commander Maj Gen Teeraphol Thipjaroen and attended by Ma Cuihong, who as Deputy Consul-General of the Chinese Consulate-General in Songkhla also heads the Phuket Consular Office of the Consulate General of the People’s Republic of China, and other relevant government officials.

Gen Teeraphol said, “This meeting is being held to explain measures being taken for Chinese tourists’ safety in Phuket.

Advertising boards, warning signs and guide books will soon have Chinese language included because then tourists will know when and in what areas they need to be careful,” he said.

Gen Teeraphol also repeated safety measures already in place at beaches and that heightened control measures have been put in place against vehicle rental businesses.
