On May 27th, Punyawee Thongsiriset from Phuket Public Relations Department welcomed Phuket Governor Mr Tri Akkaradecha to the National Youth Games Press Center on the 2nd floor of Royal Phuket City Hotel.
Mr Tri greeted all media and said, “Phuket has put a high amount of money into holding the Phuket Games. However, it’s expected 600 million Baht will be gained from the games. I have ordered the Department of Internal Trade of Thailand to control prices for everyone so that goods are not too pricey. Moreover, brochures containing information about food and souvenirs have been given out to all visitors. Despite that, I would like Phuket residents and those in nearby provinces to come to the games and give support to all the athletes competing.”
