Thailand's Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva on Monday said the 15th Summit of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) will be held in Cha-am and Hua Hin as the government plans to enforce the Internal Security Act (ISA) during the meeting in October, reported state news agency TNA.

Presiding over the meeting with the agencies concerned regarding the Asean summit, the premier said the Asean summit and related meetings with the regional grouping’s dialogue partners will take place in the seaside towns of Cha-am and Hua Hin in Phetchaburi and Prachuap Khiri Khan provinces southwest of Bangkok from October 23- 25.

To ensure the security during the upcoming summit, the government will enforce the special law around the meeting venues, Abhisit said.

The government earlier planned for the 15th Asean summit and related meetings to be held in Phuket but the prime minister said it might be “inconvenient” to hold the summit there as the tourist-oriented community will hold its annual vegetarian fair, and that the necessary security arrangements could negatively impact tourism at that time.
