He added that cooperation has developed positively between the two cities over the years in relation to educational and cultural exchanges which has enhanced the relationship between the two. Having a direct flight route between the two cities has also allowed the relationship to develop.

V/Gov Amnuay thanked the Chinese people for their kind assistance during the COVID-19 pandemic and then extended thanks on behalf of the people of Phuket to Vice Mayor and all officials of Xiamen City.

He concluded by saying that he hoped this occasion would only serve to further enhance relations between the two cities and that Phuket hopes to welcome another official delegation from Xiamen to the island in the near future.
