PM and Cabinet announce policies to the National Assembly


Key policies have been presented at the National Assembly led by Prime Minister and Finance Minister Srettha Thavisin to address Thailand’s economic, social and political challenges.

The government has committed to fostering unity and harmony in Thai society while tackling issues such as the stagnant economy still recovering from the pandemic, declining exports, and high household debt. Additionally, the administration is looking to stimulate short-term spending through a 10,000 baht stipend policy, offering debt relief to various sectors, reducing energy costs, and focusing more on tourism as a means of generating revenue.

For the medium- and long-term, the government aims to open new trade avenues, invest in transportation infrastructure, and focus on sustainable and clean energy solutions. The policies also emphasize decentralization, digitalization and modernization, including reforms in education and the military.

Special focus will be placed on addressing challenges related to Thailand’s aging society and income inequality. Social welfare, environmental protections and public health are also key areas of focus, with the aim of providing equal opportunities and a better quality of life for all citizens.

The preceding is a press release from the Thai Government PR Department.
