Phuket, Thailand: A preliminary meeting between the OCA, the NOC of Thailand and the Sports Authority of Thailand was held in Phuket on April 14-15 in order to finalise various arrangements for hosting the 4th Asian Beach Games in Phuket in 2014. 
 
The 4th ABG will be held on the beaches of Patong and Karon in Phuket city, which is a major tourist destination. The local authorities have shown great interest in the Games and it is expected that around 16 to 17 sports will be included for competitions in the Games, which will be held in November 2014. 
 
Mr. Sombot Kuruphan, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, said the 4th ABG would be a great boost not only to the sporting culture in Phuket but also for tourism in this part of the world.
 
Mr. Husain Al-Musallam, Director General OCA, stated that the Asian Beach Games had grown in stature and received great appreciation and support all around the world. The other continents are following in the footsteps of OCA to organise the Beach Games, he added.
