Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha will visit Udon Thani province in the upper Northeast on Wednesday for a meeting with representatives of the public and private sectors on provincial development and opening of the province to tourists under the Udon Plus model, government spokesman Thanakorn Wangboonkongchana said.

On Wednesday morning, the prime minister and his entourage would visit Wat Kesorn Seelakhun (Wat Pa Ban Tad) in Muang district and pay homage to Phra Rachvachirathamacharn, the temple abbot, and other senior monks, and follow up on the construction of a museum to house the ashes of former abbot Luang Ta Maha Bua.

Gen Prayut would then attend a meeting with representatives of the public and private sectors and be briefed by governor Sayam Sirimongkol on the province's development plans, including the connection of transport and logistical systems with countries in the Greater Mekong Sub-region, which encompasses Cambodia, China (specifically Yunnan province and Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region), Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam.

He would also be briefed on preparations for the Udon Thani International Horticultural Expo in 2026.

In the afternoon, the prime minister and his entourage were scheduled to visit Wat Kham Chanot, a popular tourist spot in Ban Dung district, one of the six districts designated to be open to tourists under the Udon Plus model, the spokesman said.
