HMAS Sirius to dock at Ao Makam during 2-6 October 2009

30 November 2009 – HMAS Sirius Commander John Cowan, RAN visited Phuket Governor Wichai Praisa-ngob due to HMAS Sirius will dock at Ao Makam during 2-6 October 2009
The governor reviled that this is our good opportunity to recreate relationship between Phuket and Australia. On the other hand, it will boost up Phuket tourism in Australian eyes and it’s our chance to delete bad images.

There will be about 3,000 AUS Navy sailors scheduled to dock at Phuket after the USS Ronald Reagan had visited Phuket last week, and brought millions cash flow during their stay.
As well Phuket provincial reminds everyone not to take advantage of the sailors. If we give them good impressions, they will keep telling good things about Phuket. That’s what we should do.
