Prayut greeted by hopeful locals in tourism-starved Phuket

 Residents of Phuket's Old Town turned out to greet Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha on Tuesday as the premier inspected the area’s businesses.

The inspection was part of the Cabinet's summit on social and economic development in the tourism-reliant southern provinces of Ranong, Phang-nga, Phuket, Krabi, Trang and Satun.

The Cabinet announced more soft loans to support tourism businesses hit by the absence of international travellers since the Covid-19 travel ban was imposed at the end of March.

The premier stayed at Splash Beach Resort Mai Khao in Thalang district, where locals and government officials turned out to greet him.
