PHUKET: Phuket Governor Narong Woonchiew has been told that Phuket should stick to its strengths in restarting the island’s economy, promoting the natural attractions in the area along with the island’s tin mining history and food and culture as the main proponents for initially drawing tourists back to the island.

 

The call for “back to basics” tourism came at a seminar at the Prince of Songkla University Phuket campus on Thursday (June 25), held to discuss and present a “white paper” on strategies to restart the island’s economy.

 

At the meeting, the Governor was told that the pandemic had already cost Phuket B160 billion in lost revenues.

Same for Cambodia, special ticket prices for Angkor Wat announced, but locals get in free ...... who do they think will buy the tickets? I guess you don't need to be all that bright to get government posts in Asia.

plus 30usd for a visa.

Developing other sectors through public-private projects would help stimulate the economy and help the island cope with other situations that may occur in the future, the report added.

 

Cue a succession of announcements of new hubs being created!
