BANGKOK (NNT) - After the Ministry of Commerce received cooperation from the business sector to help those affected by the viral disease COVID-19, by lowering product prices by as much as 68 percent on three occasions, the ministry will soon launch the fourth round of price reductions, which will take place at a district level.

 

In the fourth round, some 7,100 consumer goods have been added to the price reduction list. They will be sold at designated locations in 878 districts nationwide. People will be able to buy five kilograms of rice at a price of 95 baht, 10 chicken eggs for 20 baht, a bottle of cooking palm oil at 30 baht, canned fish at 10 baht and one kilogram of sugar for 20 baht.

 

This week, the Deputy Prime Minister and Commerce Minister, Jurin Laksanawisit, held a teleconference with provincial commerce officials via Zoom. They were directed to promote the price reduction project to the local people. The project will initially be launched in 45 districts on June 7th and all other districts by next month.

Guess price reduction and strengthening of Thai Baht goes hand in hand.

What is it with these photos, they all look like cardboard cutouts.

Same with police, when they catch someone and they all stand behind, they all look as if their in a lineup.

 

Even sillier taking these pics when they have masks on.

"People will be able to buy five kilograms of rice at a price of 95 baht, 10 chicken eggs for 20 baht, a bottle of cooking palm oil at 30 baht, canned fish at 10 baht and one kilogram of sugar for 20 baht."

Are they purposefully trying to drive small stores, markets out of business? Seems so, but do they do ever consider collateral damage?

Actually the last 2 months or so, there have been excellent price reductions and promotions at most supermarkets. I like to do most of the home shopping as it gets me out of the house during these weird times.

Imagine getting excited over 2 bottles of shampoo for 89 baht, when before one bottle was 139 baht.  Now thats fun..haha.

A week ago I was paying 18.30 baht per litre for 95 petrol, then a few days later it shot up to 23 baht, then it went back down to 20, and today it is back up to 22 baht.

 

W.T.F.

No evidence of this at my local Big C, in fact from a month ago when I last went, prices on many items have noticeably increased.
