At 9:30 AM, on January 11th, 2024, Srettha Thavisin, Thai Prime Minister, signed a Clean Air bill while visiting Chiang Mai to follow up on public transportation networks and air pollution problems.
Previously, Srettha publicly revealed that the Clean Air bill was presented at the most recent cabinet meeting by both government and opposition sectors to alleviate air pollution in Thailand in a similar approach. The Clean Air bill had been reviewed by Thai citizens and relevant agencies before being inspected according to law by the Thai Council of State.
The Thai government working group handed the Clean Air bill to the Thai Prime Minister upon arrival in Chiang Mai, and Srettha signed approval of the bill.
The working group was ordered to deliver the bill to the Thai parliamentary meeting for further consideration as a national agenda, especially PM 2.5 problems, on the same day.
TPN media notes, however, that implementing many of the sections in the bill is a completely different process than signing it and will take significant cooperation from many sectors and even nearby countries.
