Danish Ambassador taps Phuket Gov on hot issues

PHUKET: Jet-skis, beach zones, tourist safety and traffic were among the topics discussed at a closed-door meeting between Phuket Governor Nisit Jansomwong and Danish Ambassador to Thailand Mikael Hemniti Winther at Provincial Hall yesterday afternoon (June11).

Also present for the talks was Mr Søren Nutzhorn Hede, the Danish honorary consul for Phuket, Phang Nga and Krabi.

“They asked for support on every issue affecting Danish tourists in Phuket, but they were especially concerned about the safety of their people while they were in Phuket,” Gov Nisit told the press after the meeting.

“I advised Ambassador Mikael that more CCTV cameras have been installed all over the island, especially in tourist areas, to monitor any suspicious activities.

“The number of Danish tourists coming to Thailand is increasing every year because Phuket and Denmark has such a great relationship. Security and safety for their people is their main concern and Phuket must deliver that,” he said.

Gov Nisit explained that the problems involving tourists renting jet-skis had abated since the beach zoning campaign was rolled out last year, and earlier this year.

“I told Ambassador Mikael that since we set up zones for beach operators and increased the the number zones for jet-skis from three to five,we have had fewer problems to deal with. The recent campaign to ensure jet-skis are registered and insured has also helped to clear the issue,” he said.

Regarding efforts to resolve traffic congestion on the island, Gov Nisit explained the ongoing slew of major roadworks underway and slated for construction in the near future, including the underpasses and flyovers at major traffic choke points. (See story here).

“I also explained the efforts to improve public transportation in Phuket, including the bus services available for tourists to take from the airport to attractions around the island, that and we have added more metered taxis on the island so travellers get quickly and conveniently get to anywhere on the island and other provinces,” Gov Nisit said.

There have been many meetings from foreign Ambassadors with officials in Thailand, but they normally get lip service and matters carry on as before. Due the Ambassadors not residing in areas such as Phuket they cant evaluate any changes.
Would'nt it be great if several foreign Ambassadors had their own network and hit the officials here in numbers to air their concerns rather than just as ind...

Why not have a vote from all the expats living in the Chalong/Rawai area regarding the future of Chalong circle! Underpass or Overpass.Farangs only because we have no financial interest,just want it to get done with.The best would be a bypass. Horst

But what did the ambassador say to the governor? Possibly:
Could not all the accidents and scams due to the use of jet skis be eliminated simply by banning them from the beaches completely?
Should not further development be halted until the road infrastructure is improved together with a decent public transport system?
Would it not be better to build an overpass in 6 months at a quarter the cos...
