Admiral Paladej Charoenpool, Royal Thai Navy Deputy Commander-in-Chief, revealed that, at the moment, the world was keeping an eye on the ASEAN economy due to its dramatic economy growth and strong economic power. Thailand possessed considerable strengths in all aspects as it was the access point to all regions with economic and technological openness. This was the opportunity for all participants to get to know Thailand and its powerful ship technology, which would play an important role in supporting the development of the Eastern Economic Corridor and preventing the exploitation of live and lifeless natural resources in Thai waters.

Mr. Chaichan Aiemjaroen, Deputy Governor of Chonburi, said that, in the strategic plan, Pattaya was striving towards becoming the economic hub and it required high-standard sustainable tourism, which meant that the urban development must address all economic, social, infrastructure and environmental dimensions. Particularly, economy and tourism were intrinsically linked to each other; therefore, it was important to develop mutual understanding among the business participants in order to seed investment initiatives.

Mrs. Ornwara Korapin, Director of Tourism Promotion Department of Pattaya, said that a working committee has been established to work with the Royal Thai Navy on security, joint activities, venues, public relations, medical and nursing care, traffic management and accommodations. In addition, the Bali Hai Pier bridge in southern Pattaya beach, was also renovated to serve as the main passenger pier and to improve the landscape, making it visually appealing and perfectly functional.
