On March 29th, 2010, at the conference room of Phuket Provincial Administrative Organization (PPAO), Pradit Sangchan, the president of PPAO’s board, presided over the first 2010 PPAO common meeting. The quorum consisted of Paiboon Upattising, the president of PPAO, PPAO representatives and officers from related government offices.
One interesting motion in the meeting was a query about the PPAO budget to be used to help people, especially in 2011, asked by Suwit Wongwai, PPAO representative from Rawai. Paiboon explained that PPAO has used its budget conforming to its policies to help people and develop Phuket. Most of the budget has been used in projects about public health, economy, tourism, IT, and administration. PPAO also liaises with its members and other local administrative organizations to find out and help solve problems affecting locals’ living.
