The Thai government plans to kick start its 300 billion baht “Thai Niyom Yangyuen” sustainability project today as the Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha is set to visit Nakhon Pathom.
The PM announced yesterday that he would give further details on the government’s new project during his visit to one of Bangkok’s neighbouring provinces.
He said after he speaks to the people today members from different committees would go out and speak to the public in project areas, the projects name translates to “sustainable Thai way.”
A Thai Niyom website has been set up so the public can make suggestions as to what they want the government to do and achieve, in doing so it will allow the government to assess the people’s needs.
The first goal of the project is reportedly to increase the incomes for the poorest people in the kingdom those who earn between 100,000 to 300,000 baht per year according to the PM.
The project will focus on three main projects, state welfare for the poor, improving the nation’s competitiveness and improving the nation’s agricultural sectors, 100 billion baht has been earmarked for each.
Farmers will be encouraged to grow products that are in the most demand as opposed to just growing the same crops year on year.
