Irish, Danish get local representation

PHUKET: Requests by the Republic of Ireland and Denmark to establish consular representation in Phuket have been approved by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The Deputy Director-General of the Ministry’s Department of Information, Kiattikhun Chartprasert, told the Gazette on Friday that both countries had proposed setting up official consulates on the island in order to serve their nationals living and traveling in the region and to provide other consular services.

The requests were approved during a Cabinet meeting on June 28, he said.

Both diplomatic missions were set up on a temporary basis after the tsunami and have been operating informally since.

Helène Fallon Wood will be officially appointed Honorary Consul of Ireland in Phuket and Peter Truelsen will be Consul General of Denmark in Phuket, he confirmed.
