The chairman of the Thai Chamber of Commerce is satisfied with the list of the new economic ministers.
Kalin Sarasin, chairman of the Thai Chamber of Commerce, said that he was happy with media reports that Predee Daochai would become a deputy prime minister and the finance minister and Supattanapong Panmeechao would be the energy minister.
Both were highly capable and knowledgeable about economic problems so they were suitable for their future roles, Mr Kalin said.
Regarding negative economic outlooks seen by many parties, Mr Kalin said that the Thai economy depended on the global economy that was facing uncertainty because the number of COVID-19 cases were rising in countries including Japan and the United States.
Thailand had to prevent a sharp economic downturn by balancing business against pubic safety when it handled COVID-19, he said. (TNA)
