Bangkok (VNA/NNT) - The Chonburi Provincial Administrative Organization and the Pattaya local administrative organization have expressed their readiness to host the ASEAN International Fleet Review 2017 scheduled for November this year.

Both offices have recently welcomed members of the public relations subcommittee of the ASEAN International Fleet Review and informed them of the tourism plan during the period.

According to the Pattaya Tourism Office, several activities will be organized to promote Thai culture and stimulate the local economy, such as a Loy Krathong event, a seafood festival, and an international jet ski competition. The office promised to maintain the city's cleanliness and provide the necessary facilities while underlining safety measures for the entire month of November.

At the meeting, the Thai Hotels Association Eastern Chapter presented plans to offer accommodations at special prices for members of the press.

The ASEAN International Fleet Review 2017 is part of celebrations to mark the 50th anniversary of Association of Southeast Asian Nations and demonstrate the harmony of the bloc's naval forces. The Royal Thai Navy has combined the 11th ASEAN Navy Chief’s Meeting, the First ASEAN Multilateral Naval Exercise and the International Fleet Review into a single event.
