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
Pattaya and Banglamung celebrate 74th birthday of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej
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.
