Pattaya City celebrates 23rd Anniversary

On November 29, 1978, the central government elevated Pattaya City to a "special status", officially recognizing the transformation of the once sleepy fishing village into a full fledged resort city. And although Pattaya has been around for perhaps hundreds of years, the date is considered the birth of present day Pattaya.
On November 29 this year, Mayor Pairat Suttithamrongsawat, members of the city council, city officials and leaders from surrounding communities took part in a ceremony in front of Pattaya City Hall commemorating the city's 23rd anniversary.

BOT ready to use financial policy to stimulate economy

Bangkok (TNA) – Bank of Thailand’s Governor M.R. Pridiyathorn Devakula Thursday disclosed he was ready to use the financial policy to jumpstart the country’s economy to grow around 1-3% of gross domestic products as projected next year.
He said the bank would adjust the financial policy in the first few months of next year if the economies in many countries, particularly the United States and Japan, remained in the doldrums.
Previously, the bank had reiterated the implementation of its financial policy would focus on the economic stability. It is the duty of the Finance Ministry to stimulate the country’s economy.
The BOT chief said the country’s international reserve is currently as high as US$33 billion, which is considered sufficient to ensure the economic stability and to service foreign debts incurred by the private sector and the International Monetary Fund-backed debts.
So, the bank was ready to use the financial policy, including interest and currency exchange mechanisms, to stimulate the economy if necessary.
