The emphasis of the recommendations is on efficiency and utilization of an e-Government system with calls for collaboration on stimulating tourism and dispersing revenue to local areas, as well as improved water management.
The DPM underlined that cooperation by all sectors has led to Thailand’s globally acknowledged ability to combat COVID-19 and stated that the government will work over the next 18 months to prop up the economy and bring it back to growth. He noted that many measures have already been put forward to improve the economy, encompassing improving liquidity and relaxing restrictions in the interests of tourism.
