Pattaya officials took the first steps toward organizing yet another committee to ponder how to improve the quality of life for the city’s disabled.

Deputy Mayor Wutisak Rermkitkarn was joined by bureaucrats from the Social Welfare, Employment, Education and General Secretary’s departments, as well as 10 job-seeking disabled students from the Father Ray Foundation schools.

The meeting, intended only as a preliminary session to consider committee members, follows the establishment of two similar committees last year. As then, the stated goal was to improve education and training of the disabled, provide better employment opportunities and enhance disabled people’s overall quality of life.

Further meetings or concrete plans for action were not disclosed.
