PTA elects new president

PHUKET TOWN: Pattanapong Aikwanich, Managing Director of Diamond Cliff Resort, was elected President of the Phuket Tourist Association (PTA) on Saturday. The biennial election attracted 117 of the PTA’s 198-strong membership to the Metropole Hotel to cast their votes. First business of the meeting was for members to elect a committee of 11, which later voted for K. Pattanapong to replace Sombat Atiset as President. In his first speech as President, K. Pattanapong said the association’s priority was for committee members to take up official roles. “After that we will brainstorm [to find out] what the PTA needs to do, which I think will not be difficult because we already have a clear objective of developing Phuket’s tourism,” K. Pattanapong said.
