PM to hold Cabinet meeting in Phang Nga

PHUKET: Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra will hold a “mobile” Cabinet meeting in Phang Nga on September 5 and 6.

On September 5, he will arrive, accompanied by some of his ministers, at Phuket International Airport in the morning, and be driven to Tambon Khuek Khak (Khao Lak) and Takuapa district in Phang Nga, before having lunch with local people.

The Prime Minister will hear reports by local government officials and Poo Yai Baan (village heads) on progress in building permanent housing for tsunami victims. He will also make a donation of longtail boats and fishing baskets, give grants to orphans, and then cook some food for the locals.

In the afternoon, he will visit the Rajaprajanugroh 35 School to inspect the recently completed school building before handing over 92 homes and one multi-purpose building to people affected by the tsunami in that vicinity.

Next, he will chair an “Assets into Capital” meeting in the mid-afternoon before he and his ministers head for the Khao Lak Merlin Resort for a further meeting with businesspeople and local government representatives involved in the post-tsunami recovery of Phuket, Phang Nga and Krabi.

An official Cabinet meeting will take place at the Phang Nga Naval Base from 9 am to 2 pm on September 6, after which the PM and ministers will return to Bangkok.
