Top issues listed on the congress agenda are selecting a new International Ice Skating Union Executive Board and to discuss the impact of the war between Russia and Ukraine.

“It is a special agenda that is being watched by various sports around the world,” Mr Phiphat said.

“This will have a positive effect on the name of Thailand being widely spoken, and help promote ice skating within Thailand. It is also a good opportunity to promote Thailand’s tourism sector to the world, presenting the both identity of Phuket and the beautiful culture and traditions of Thailand,” he added.
