Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha is happy with the success Thai athletes achieved at the 2016 Summer Paralympics.
The prime minister offered his thanks and congratulations to Thai athletes and coaches for dedicating themselves to bringing international recognition to Thailand.
Breaking its own records, Thailand clinched 6 gold, 6 silver and 6 bronze medals in the competition.
Once again, he said this has proven that people with disabilities are assets of the nation. They are the ones who make the nation great.
The prime minister also promised people with disabilities support and assistance in all their endeavors, saying the government has taken steps to empower the disabled through various programs such as the “Streets To Stars” project and the “PromptPay” system.
The premier then gave thanks to Montien Boonton, a member of the national legislature, for raising public awareness about people with disabilities and empowering the underprivileged.
