Hilton Phuket Arcadia tipped to host Asean summit

KARON, PHUKET: Deputy Prime Minister Suthep Thaugsuban today leads the defense minister, commanders of the armed forces and the national police chief to visit Phuket ahead of the upcoming Asean summit.

The group is meeting with tourism industry leaders and local government officials at the Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort and Spa this afternoon.

However, it has yet to be formally announced that the Hilton, Phuket’s largest hotel, will host the much anticipated meeting.

Mr Suthep said he is confident the summit of the Asean leaders and dialogue partners in Phuket will not be disrupted by anti-government protesters like the summit in Pattaya over the Songkran holidays last month.
