PHUKET:-- Deputy Prime Minister Jurin Laksanawisit went on the defensive yesterday after being forced to face a slew of complaints from leading Phuket figures pointing out the lack of support from the central government to help people and businesses on the island suffering from the COVID-19 economic crisis.

 

Deputy PM Jurin, who also serves as the Commerce Minister, was in Phuket to hear firsthand the current economic situation in Phuket. He got it, with no room for any misunderstanding.

 

The clearest description of the current situation on the island came from Phuket Tourism Council President Sarayut Mallam, who pleaded for members of the Cabinet to visit the island to see the economic damage for themselves.

It is all the people without jobs now that truly need help and many of those are back up country putting extra burden on their families whereas before they were able to relieve the burden by sending money back home.

But, Phuket does need to come up with a cohesive plan to diversify away from being tourism dependent & not just keep demanding funds to continue the same old destructive tourism behaviour.
