Government officials must set a good example to the general public. They must work with the principles of simplicity, and this behaviour will set a good example for the development of Phuket. Our focus is on cleanliness, safety and comfort,” he urged

Gov Norraphat added, “But the focus on these issues will intensify in all areas. We will keep Phuket beautiful with our hands and hearts.

Measures for traffic safety, sports campaigns, campaigns for reducing drug use among youths, and a sustainable water management plan are the steps to solving these problems,” he said.
