Following Mr. Apisit's victory, on 15 December, 2008, Mr. Ittipol Khunpleum , Pattaya City Mayor, immediately made an impassioned request for the new PM's help to revive Pattaya's flagging fortunes. This was just one of the many requests nationwide for Mr. Apisit's help.

Because the tourism industry is such a huge contributor to Thailand’s economy, Mr. Ittipol maintained that it should be among the first priorities for the country and should head the new PM’s ‘must do’ list. The city is currently suffering sorely from the crisis provoked by the closure of Bangkok’s airports. The Mayor has been checking around every area where Pattaya used to have many visitors, especially at this time of the year. The city is normally packed as this is supposed to be the peak season, but going walkabout down Pattaya’s famous Walking Street at 1.00 am, he found it very, very quiet.

Mr. Ittipol commented that the new government should concentrate on the tourism industry by rebuilding the trust and security for the tourists as fast as possible. He felt assured that with the new prime minister being on a par with himself as regards youthful vigour and enthusiasm that they could work very well together to help Thailand’ foremost tourist resort. Mr. ittipol is also confident that Mr. Apisit’s urbane experience of the world and economic know-how will do much to reassure flagging foreign investors and retrieve the situation for the country soon. He is looking forward to working with the new PM to restore Pattaya to its former glory.
