The meeting, held at Phuket Provincial Hall, was overseen by Pichet Panaphong, Deputy Governor of Phuket, and included representatives from the tournament organising committee and selected heads of government agencies.

The five-day tournament, to be held at Phuket Rajabhat University, is being organised by Phuket Province in collaboration with the Karate Sports Association of Thailand and is expected to attract around 800 people, including athletes from over 20 countries, some of whom have competed at the Olympic Games.

The tournament is also anticipated to attract well over 1,000 fans and keen followers of the sport which will be a welcome boost to the local economy and tourism industry.
