Public urged to wear yellow shirt every week

PHUKET CITY: Vice Governor Vorapot Rattasima has urged everyone, whether in government service or the private sector, to wear a yellow polo shirt with the symbol of HM King Bhumibol’s Diamond Jubilee every Monday for the rest of the year.

He was speaking at the regular gubernatorial meeting with the press today. Also there was Sompoch Sungkapong, Chief of the Phuket Internal Trade Office (ITO), who announced measures to correct the shortage of official yellow shirts.

“More than 4,700 yellow polo shirt will be on sale [from July 20] at the Big C Supercenter, in Siam Makro and at all 7- Eleven branches in Phuket.

“Prices will be 250 baht for a 100% cotton shirt and 200 baht for cotton-mix fabric.

“Those who have been unable to get shirts can order as many as they wish from the ITO from now until June 30, at the same prices. Sizes range from S to XXL for both types.

“The ITO will send all the order forms to Bangkok and the first batch of shirts will be available for collection from the ITO by the middle of July,” he said.

He added that anyone coming across vendors selling shirts at “unreasonable prices” can call the ITO hotline at Tel: 1569. Offenders face a fine of 2,000 baht.
