BANGKOK (NNT) - The Cabinet meeting on Tuesday approved budget of more than 275 million baht to help rice farmers and maintain the quality of Jasmine rice.

 

Apart from a 275 million-baht budget, the Cabinet approved a project to maintain the quantity and quality of Thai Jasmine rice for the 2019/2020 production year. The budget will be spent on rice grain for the farmers whose rice was damaged during the 2018-2019 production year. Five kilos of rice grain/rai will be given to the farmers.

 

The Cabinet approved the 4th road safety master plan which focuses on developing a road safety system and promoting a safety culture. The plan also seeks to reduce the number of road accident fatalities among at-risk groups. Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha instructed relevant units to use technology to manage traffic with a focus on areas with traffic congestion.

 

As for public health, the meeting approved 19.1 billion baht for the national health security fund for the fiscal year 2020 to ensure the availability of more medical treatments for people in need.

 

Regarding the establishment of the Rail Department, the Cabinet approved drafts of ministerial regulations for the department. The ministerial regulations are expected to be enforced mid April 2019. The law authorizing the department’s establishment has been submitted to His Majesty the King to be signed.

Instructing them to use existing LAWS would be quicker.

Why this 275 million-baht budget expense?

The insurance is essencially free to the farmers with government insurance subsidies.

The additional 275 million-baht looks like pure boon to the farmers (coincidentally in an election year?) or maybe shared by "Others"?

Yea farmers seem to get money always around election time. Strangely I havent seen much about it in other election programs. Thankfully this year the programs seem to include all poor not just farmers.

I hope it works better than the others.  They still can’t figure out they need to actually police 🙄
