Around 1,200 delegates and 800 media personnel from across the globe are expected to attend and political co-operation and security are expected to top the agenda.

Phuket Governor Wichai Phraisa-ngop said, ''This is an important meeting for the Asian region and we expect the foreign ministers from all ten Asean member states to attend, along with ministers from our dialogue partner states of Australia, Japan, New Zealand, the European Union, the United States, China, India, South Korea and Russia.”

The Governor went on to say, ''Phuket will be watched from all over the world, especially if Mrs Clinton attends. We will show the world that Phuket is peaceful and fully prepared to host the Asean Summits in October.”

The Foreign Ministry, which is organising the meeting, said Laguna Phuket has 800 rooms available at its six resorts over the period.  Other hotels providing accommodation will include the J.W. Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa in Mai Khao, the Courtyard by Marriott Phuket at Surin Beach and the Indigo Pearl at Nai Yang Beach.
