Improve the economic numbers by closing down factories and plants for two extra days???  Ding. Ding. Ding. What is going on, here?

 

Right.

 

And for that matter, why 2 days... only ?

 

Why not 6 months more ? That would be even better for the economy, according to their weird logic...

 

Perpetual Songkran... Good for the economy.

 

At last, the people will be able to spend... the money they don't have. 😉

All that plastic that was used on bags can be directed to cheap plastic junk. So genius.

 

Largest drought in two decades.

When I was still back in Hua Hin, the 7/11 closest to me adopted that rule for 2 days, before resorting back to plastic bags. The Family Mart on the other hand has seemed to keep with the no plastic bag rule

consumption does not stimulate an economy, production does.

Who are these "government"<deleted>? I try to plan my visits to miss Songkran.Closed smaller shops and loss of business.With the high baht I'd expect a lot of more affluent Thais [My landlady,Gov't workers ,a couple of hotel owners, and Some Thai Vietnamese I know,for example] will be taking overseas trips at this time.

Still, shopping malls, breweries , distilleries,car repair shops, and coffin makers will be making money.

They want you to go to the shops to spend all that extra money that you probably do not have but have you ever tried to go shopping over Songkran? If you can get there and back without being soaked you have done very well. (for non-car people)

Many thousands of people crushed up against each other for 5 days (nearly two weeks in Pattaya), I'm sure that'll help the virus situation 😞

Help the economy by bringing down the THB to at least 40 : 1 for the € would make much more sense.
