Phuket “69ers’ to promote Thai ICT in China | Thaiger

PHUKET CITY: Representatives from Phuket businesses and other organizations will travel to Nanning City in Guangxi, China, for the 5th China-ASEAN Expo (CAEXPO) to be held from October 22-25.

Phuket Vice-Governor Smith Palawatwichai met officers from the Department of Export Promotion (DEP), the Phuket Office of the Software Industries Promotion Agency (SIPA) and Phuket business operators at Phuket Provincial Hall yesterday to discuss Phuket’s representation at the event.

The expo will comprise 3,000 booths allocated in four pavilions: Pavilion of Commodity Trade, Pavilion of Investment Cooperation, Pavilion of Agricultural Applicable Technology and Pavilion of Cities of Charm.

DEP Deputy Director-General Niramol Charoenphao explained that Thailand will be represented in the Pavilion of Cities of Charm and this year the DEP is planning to promote the nation’s information and communications technology (ICT) as its star at the event along with the many other Thai products and services usually presented at international expo events.

Khun Niramol said that Thailand has been allocated 169 booths, of which the DEP has reserved 69 booths for Phuket and its business operators to display their products and services.

“We chose Phuket to be the country’s representative as Phuket has very high potential in everything. We would like Phuket to present to foreign countries its capabilities in ICT to ensure foreigners that they can visit or invest in Phuket as it has up-to-date technology ready for them,” she said.

“Phuket should also let people know that it is a charming city with good security, to dispel the negative impression from the tsunami, and it should present all the hospitality products that Phuket is known for the world over,” she said.

K. Niramol added that for the past year Chonburi’s Laem Chabang industrial township has represented Thailand at similar international events, with good feedback. “We hope that this year Phuket will generate a lot of interest from people at the event,” she said.
