Have to start somewhere. I don't suppose 'Western' countries would have been much good at producing an Airbus A380 in 1960.

False equivalence. Western countries would not have had the benefit of someone else with mastery teaching them - because they were pioneers.

OK, but - at each stage of technical advance or at least change - they still had to build from what was there before. No different from here, except somewhere like 20-50 years behind the educational & skills game here (the quantity depending on the particular skillset).

Yes, of course everyone must build from wherever they are. My point is that Thais are often arrogant and incompetent. As a national characteristic, they are fiercely proud people who don't seem to take advice from outsiders well. 

 

If they did, they might be where Singapore is or even Malaysia or Taiwan. They have not earned the arrogance they so often display as their record of contribution is low and their mistakes myriad.

France Airbus and national flag carrier Thai Airways International last June launched a joint venture for MRO facilities at U-tapao Airport, in a deal overseen in France by junta chief Prayut Chan-o-cha.

Good luck with a JV with Thai Airways

But perhaps Prayut reassured France Airbus that the Thai government will bail out state-owned Thai Airways et al so that it can meet its JV financial commitments, albeit at the cost of the Thai taxpayers who are supposed to be the recipient of EEC financial benefits.

Sihasak helped close the MRO deal last year and is now an adviser to the EEC project.

Does now being an EEC advisor mean he negotiated his own compensation during MRO negotiations?

He should have been recused from employment for at least two years to avoid any perception of personal beneficial collusion.

Blatantly wrong for the military to be involved in business. The military own the land and they now managing the lease. Just why are military land use for generating money and not for military purposes. So many wrongs.

This report and this particular comment sounds awfully like an an electioneering announcement for the PM. Something that is not supposed to happen and not allowed by law while he is in caretaker mode.

 

The announcement sounded good last June......so let's make it again now.

And other news on the two deck 380. Stopping construction because no-one wants to buy them.

Who needs to speak English when you've got French work ethic combined with Thai efficiency.

We will incorporate the latest digital technologies, specialised repair shops and a maintenance training centre,” he added. “For Airbus, our MoU with THAI is about the opportunity to innovate and to lead the way in the aerospace sector.

I hope they have good English teachers  😉
