PHAYAO – Former Chiang Rai Governor Narongsak Osotthanakorn has officially taken up his new position as Phayao governor amid a warm welcome at the provincial city hall.
Governor Narongsak and his wife, Jinjana Osotthanakorn, traveled to the city hall on his first day in office as the new governor of Phayao province. Local residents and civil servants presented him with red roses to show their support.
