Adm Narong will chair a meeting at Phuket Provincial Hall at 9am, where flooding has been named as one of the key issues on the agenda.
He will also travel to Thalang in the morning, then to Chalong in the afternoon
During his previous visit to Phuket in May 2014, when Adm Narong was also Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Thai Navy, storms waylaid much of the Deputy PM’s plans to inspect different areas of the island. (See story here.)
However, he did affirm that 89 titles deeds for land covering some 1,200 rai and encroaching into Sirinart Marine National Park can immediately be cancelled. (See story here.)
After serving as deputy chief of the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO), Adm Narong was later appointed to the post of Minister for Education, before his installment as Deputy Prime Minister last August.
Adm Narong also chaired the national committee on tackling human trafficking set up last year, tasked with investigating the heinous crime of profiteering in trading and trafficking human lives within the Kingdom.
