“It is easy to see why Thailand continues to rank highly in the world’s tourism rankings, and these rankings do not only take into account natural resources and convenient transportation, but also the quality of services and professionalism of service providers,” he added.

“Due to the development of Asean, those working in Phuket’s tourism industry have to develop themselves to be the best service providers,” Gov Norraphat concluded.

Dr Kritsada added that the Andaman Hotelier Phuket was held with co-operation from the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Phuket office, Thai Hotels Association (Southern Chapter), Phuket Tourist Association, Patong Hotels Association, Food and Beverage Managers Club, Phuket Chief Engineer Club, Personnel Management Association of Phuket, Housekeeping Club Phuket and Andaman, Phuket Spa Association, Phuket Andaman Culinary Club and Software Industry Promotion Agency (Public Organisation).
