I see there's no mention of the budget for "planned maintenance" to ensure the system is kept running.

(Google translate just returns a 404 error when I try it)

 

Suppose we'll just have to wait for the reports of how they couldn't monitor a particular event due to the camera concerned 'not working'.

Then there will be a meeting to upgrade the system to an even better all-singing-all-dancing one - again without any maintenance.

How about doing something about the Taxi Mafia if they want to improve 'Tourist Confidence' !

GRAB is already fixing that.

Mayor Ramnet Jaikwang led the meeting saying that Samui had had an explosion in tourism and it was important for the infrastructure to catch up and for tourists to have confidence.
