The groups offered their opinions on existing proposals, suggested new projects and evaluated the management schema laid out earlier by DASTA.

The agenda was focused on three main areas listed in the organization’s 2012-2015 master plan, which has a budget of 1.07 billion baht: social environment development, eco-tourism development, and transport and utilities.

The value of projects proposed earlier and never funded was reviewed and future proposals were evaluated and graded. Once prioritized, the projects will be allocated funding.
