AustCham Thailand and the Australian Consulate General Phuket, in collaboration with Australian Alumni, British Chamber of Commerce Thailand (BCCT), Belgian-Luxembourg/Thai Chamber of Commerce, CanCham Thailand, Franco-Thai Chamber of Commerce (FTCC), German-Thai Chamber of Commerce (GTCC) and the Netherlands-Thai Chamber of Commerce (NTCC), is delighted to invite you to join us for “Australia Day Phuket Briefing 'Phuket's Plan to Lure Back Tourists' & Sundowners” at Renaissance Phuket Resort & Spa on Thursday 25th February 2021 from 5.00 - 9.00 pm.

Speaker Bhummikitti Ruktaengam, President of the Phuket Tourist Association, will discuss the plans for reviving the industry on the island paradise.

Phuket is drawing up plans to fully reopen to vaccinated visitors by October to revive its tourism industry.

It was recently reported that more than a dozen business groups are planning to pool funds to vaccinate 70% of the island’s population above 18 without waiting for a government rollout. The plan, which will need government approval, also seeks to waive a mandatory 14-day quarantine requirement, a major obstacle for many potential travelers. This will allow thousands of vaccinated Europeans who usually spend their winter months in Phuket to visit.

Then enjoy the sundowners - A celebration of all things Australian, join us for your favourite Australian food & beverages, and welcome in the New Year as the first business networking event of 2021!
