BANGKOK, 27 May 2019 (NNT) - The Prime Minister has reiterated that the government has implemented solutions to the problems of people in the community, despite the transition period. He pointed out that the prices of palm oil and rubber have gradually gone up thanks to the government measures.

 

Deputy Government Spokesman Lt. Gen. Weerachon Sukhonthapathiphak disclosed today that Prime Minister Gen. Prayut Chan-o-cha has closely followed up on the issue of the agricultural crop price slump, especially the prices of palm oil and rubber. The price of palm fruit has gradually increased to 2.15-2.60 baht per kilogram from 1.80 baht per kilogram, as a result of the government’s measures to solve the problem; such as by using palm oil to generate electricity at Bangpakong Power Plant, reducing the price of biodiesel B20 by five baht per liter and promoting the use of palm oil for cooking through sales at Blue Flag Pracharat shops.

 

Meanwhile, the Deputy Government Spokesman said the price of third-class smoked rubber sheet is now 53.63 baht per kilogram which is higher than in the previous period. This year, the government will invite entrepreneurs to reduce rubber exports voluntarily according to an agreement with neighboring countries, in order to increase rubber prices. The government has also urged various agencies to use rubber as a material in the construction of roads around the countr, to help lessen the quantity of rubber held in stock.

 

The prime minister emphasized that despite the transition period, the government has not refrained from taking action in response to the difficulties of farmers and the general public. The government will seriously and continually expedite and follow up on solutions to every problem. However, some issues require more time to solve because they are complicated.

A good step would be to stop importing so much Palm oil from Malaysia. The Thai domestic consumption is not great and importing the oil leads to a surplus; thus dropping the price at the factory gate.

How much did this "solution" cost the Thai tax payer ?  Robbing Peter to pay Paul comes to mind.
