“The mafia problem must not happen again, and especially with taxis,” he said.

PM Prayut blamed the style of thinking in failure to solve recurring problems.

“Thais do not come up with systems as a way to solve problems,” he said.

The Prime Minister also highlighted the depth and extent of problems of failing to deal with such issues, and targeted his comments at officials.

“How do others benefit from your work?” he posed. “And how do poor people, small people, get any benefit from you? All the results from our work must be transferred to ordinary people.

“Everything must be done from the heart. I am sorry to speak out loud, but if I don’t speak about this, then nobody will talk about it. This must be done, with nothing expected in return,” he said.

“Any questions?” he asked.

In closing, PM Prayut said, “I wish everyone to rise up, be rich and happy – but don’t forget the small people. Don’t make small people complain about you to me much. Take care of them.”

After his message to officials, PM Prayut walked the concourse, talking with tourist arrivals and and officials en route. He also stopped to chat with Tai Monkong, better known as Thai celebrity “Mr Bean Phuket”, accompanied by his brown teddy bear.

Kurt@ 1 thing they can do like in Immigration are sett up some cctv camera inside the Immigration, then this problem are gone maybe ?. And you have right about Rome+++, But I think not many State employees and Municipal Employees from Phuket back PM so much up. They are to greedy here in Phuket.

Well, Nasa12; I agree with you, however, Rome and Paris are not built in 1 day.
The present Prime Minister and his team work very hard to improve/tackle matters.
But Thailand is a large country, and the Prime Minister can not break iron with his hands.
Things take time. We have to be a bit patient.

To change a 'we are used to this' thai mentality in Thailand for the better will take time.

But hope we have.

To have a 2nd terminal is nice, with of course more income generating 'tax free' shops.
But now the airport needs more staff in every department.

To double arrival/departure facilities is fine.
But take off/touch down still has to happen at the same single air strip. Full= full.  Or?

I am curious or Phuket will get a 2nd strip or Phang Nga 1 strip.

Nice airport but the immigration queue's last night where out the door. I was told some people queued for more than 2 hours and the flights delayed because of this.

Maybe they need to spend more money on more staff.

You seriously need to do something about the Airport Limo service as the drivers are totally reckless and speed around over taking double lines in built up areas. These are the real mafia.

To Asterix: Did you read all this?
I fully agree with the thai Prime Minister.
It shows he exactly knows what is wrong on Phuket.
Perhaps the Prime Minister reads the comments of foreigners in PN.
Probably it helps to change things for the better in Govern here and for the thai people.

Asterix, don't complain about foreigners, but support the Prime Minister in his complain about the Phuket thai mafia and Phuket thai officials, for a better Phuket, for the poor and small people.
That includes the Sea Gipsies.  Take care of them!
