Phuket chasing a sister city in China and is hoping to have the chance to add to its sister-city collection by strengthening ties with Xiamen, a major city on the southeastern coast of China.
Having a sister city inside China, such as Xiamen, could be of great benefit for Phuket, Phuket Governor Nisit Jansomwong said yesterday during his meeting with Chinese Vice-Consul Wang Huijian.
I urge private businesses to join in building this relationship so we can see a greater exchange economically, culturally, and educationally.
Phuket already has one sister city in China: Hainan.
However, the governor made it clear that Xiamen would be a welcome addition.
The most recent sister city to join Phuket’s family was George Town in Penang, Malaysia last month.
