PM praises National Defense College for its effective national strategies


BANGKOK, 5 September 2012  – Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has praised the students of the National Defense College for their national strategies, saying they help maintain the country’s security. 

Ms Yingluck and high-ranking military officials yesterday listened to the report on the college students’ 2013-2017 strategies to ensure security for Thailand.

The first strategy concerns infrastructure development to promote Thailand as regional center. The second is about reforming the education system, with an emphasis on improving education in the South.

Anti-corruption strategy is also focused on. The government and the private sectors are encouraged to have good governance. And the last strategy is to stop violence in the South by finding the root cause of the incidents.

Ms Yingluck conceded that the most urgent issue is corruption. She said the government is by all means willing to support the military to tackle this problem.
