New CM Governor faces up to pollution and political discord

Chiang Mai has welcomed the new governor, Amornpan Nimanant, who began his work for the province on March 16.
Chiang Mai-born Amorphan was appointed as the replacement for Wibun Sa-nguanphong during the recent reshuffle involving 26 provincial governors, most of whom were transferred to inactive posts. On his first working day, he met up with his three deputy governors, Pairoj Saengpuwongm, Chumporn Saengmanee and Chuchart Keerapaeng, plus his own assistant, Surachai Jongrak, in order to allocate specific responsibilities and discuss long-term strategies.
