Khomsan said the government-meets-citizens activity allowed residents to open credit, meet the Excise Department to provide first-car services, or serve the Thai Women’s Empowerment Fund and many other beneficial services. There were many other public agencies serving citizens and presentation of 40 agriculture credits by BAAC along with a classical Thai dance performance from Alangkarn Theatre, Thai magic show by the Tuxedo Show and a white-face comedy.
Culture Minister Sukumol Kunplome said the first anniversary of the Pheu Thai government is considered as a good opportunity to inform Chonburi citizens of the policies implemented by the government for their benefit.
