Pattaya Businessmen Raise Their Concerns at PBTA Meet

There was a very large attendance of Pattaya Business & Tourist Association (PBTA) members at their recent monthly meeting, where questions were raised over the many difficult issues that lie ahead this year.

Pattaya, the 30th of April 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: The President of the PBTA, Khun Jumroon, was absent, so the meeting was very ably chaired by past president Sag-na, who is also a leading businessman, and well understands the local conditions in Pattaya. The Highway No.2 project was discussed and this involves the upgrading work of the section between Chonburi and Pattaya. This is vital as it is a very busy road link between the two cities and sees a lot of heavy traffic using this important highway.

Next came the controversial subject of the current political situation, involving the “red shirt” rallies within the Kingdom, which have undoubtedly done a lot of damage to Thailand’s tourism industry, as well as local businesses. Consequently, many local business operators took part in a demonstration in Bangkok, against the actions of the “red shirts.” However, while the wider business community strongly supported this, it cannot be denied that outside of the major cities there is a very large groundswell of support for the “red shirt” movement, especially amongst the ordinary working people. It would appear that the major political players all want to get a grip on power and win at all costs, so there is bound to be further confrontations.

Much to his credit, Pattaya City Mayor Itthiphol Khunplome re-iterated that the City Hall policy is one of remaining strictly neutral, and he obviously sees his role as that of being that of a good administrator, without becoming embroiled in political issues. Some members suggested that maybe the leaders of both the red and yellow shirt factions be invited to state their individual cases at a meeting.

Finally the issue of water shortages was raised again and officials from Chonburi and the regional water supply bodies assured members that water storage was still looking reasonably stable. However, in relation to their comments that systems were in place to trap river flood waters, the question was raised about the purity of such water. Concerns were raised regarding the chemicals and pollutants that come from ground water and if fish are dying in the rivers this is an indication of how serious the problem has become. Pattaya City Hall quickly took note of this complaint, because within a matter of a few days, official notices were sent to individual households, warning them that the normal city water supply is not fit for drinking.
