A new campaign is in the works to strengthen marine tourism relations between Phuket and Indonesia. In a discussion between Phuket Governor Norraphat Plodthong and his guest, Arief Yahya from The Indonesian Ministry of Tourism, strong support was formed towards an initiative designed to bolster travel between the two countries.

“Indonesia has just revealed their plans to run a special campaign between November 8th and December 5th, 2017 that will assist tourists travelling between Phuket and Sabang, Indonesia. We also aim to enhance and strengthen cultural relations,” said Governor Norraphat. He also revealed that a Memorandum of Understanding is in the works to promote marine relations between Langkawi Malaysia; Phuket, Thailand; and Sabang, Indonesia, as per the Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle (IMT-GT) Agreement.

“This discussion should be of benefit to those vessels cruising between Phuket and Sabang, Indonesia, where we have our APS teams in place ready to support the effort,” declared Gordon Fernandes of Asia Pacific Superyachts. “We welcome the government’s further efforts to include extending the reach in promoting marine relations between the three marine regions of Langkawi, Malaysia; Phuket and Sabang, Indonesia — all Asia Pacific Superyachts’ long established and full service and support superyacht hubs.”
