His re-election was confirmed at the meeting, held at The Merlin Phuket hotel in Phuket Town on Wednesday (Feb 24).

Among those present present for the occasion were Phuket Governor Narong Woonciew along with representatives from the Office of Small and Medium Enterprises Promotion (OSMEP) and executives from the Government Savings Bank.

“Since its establishment on Nov 27, 1983, the Phuket Chamber of Commerce has developed continuously. We have good management with a long list of members from various industries,” Mr Thanusak noted in his acceptance speech.

“We brainstorm and present creative solutions to develop our province and support business operators by publicising information from the Phuket government,” he said.   

“The chamber has managed to follow its objectives: to support the businesses in the province, to be consultants for members, to be a medium between officials and business operators, and to support projects for public benefit.

“Additionally, we work on other projects as prescribed in the Chamber of Commerce Act or projects assigned by officials,” he added.

“The chamber will not run any businesses or activities involving in any politics,” Mr Thanusak assured.

“However, the chamber is able to hold debt instruments and shares in companies registered on the stock exchange if they are donated,” he noted.

Mr Thanusak has strongly argued for government support for businesses across Phuket struggling to survive following the economic downtown brought on by the COVID-19 epidemic.

He has strong championed ideas hoped to revive Phuket’s devastated tourism industry, and has been vocal in his criticism of the lack of support from the government for business operators and employers.
