Foreign Minister and Deputy PM Don Pramudwinai

 

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said on Friday (August 7) that he has added the deputy prime minister’s post to Foreign Minister Don Pramudwinai’s portfolio because he wants to upgrade the Foreign Ministry’s role and have it take care of the economy as well as foreign affairs. 

 

He said in the post-Covid era, the Foreign Ministry should also focus on investment promotion and woo foreign investors. 

 

The premier added that he wanted to see the Labour Ministry play a key role in driving the economy, which is why it needs a deputy minister. 

 

Prayut named former government spokesperson Narumon Pinyosinwat as deputy to new Labour Minister Suchart Chomklin, who is also a Chonburi MP. 

 

As part of the Cabinet reshuffle, former director of PTT Global Chemical Supattanapong Punmeechaow has been handed the posts of deputy PM and energy minister, while former Kasikornbank president Predee Daochai has been named finance minister. 

 

Action Coalition for Thailand Party executive, Anek Laothamatas, has been named minister of higher education, science, research and innovation, while Palang Pracharath Party secretary-general Anucha Nakasai has been appointed as PM’s Office Minister.

Watched the video on moving to Malaysia and got a pang when they talked about OWNING your own home after having mine snatched by a Thai ex-wife.

Investments in another country are based on various factors like availability of skilled labour, facilitation of stay and work permits for expatriate nationals and investment protection - i.e. functioning neutral unbiased law. 

Well, skilled labour is almost impossible to get and if available, they are overpriced. In many cases there is zero loyalty and a labour law lenient to reprimand wrong-doing employees. 

Stay and work permits; too many forum choices are there confirming, that Thailand operates still in the 19th century; most offices manned with either overworked or under qualified staff, little to no English (in a total non-Thai environment, that is) and ridiculous rules invented by the file-handling officer like photographs of the permit seeker at a desk pretending to work (which is illegal since permit not issued yet), picture of the building number outside etc. etc. etc. 

As far as the juristic side is concerned it might be of interest, that the bending of Thai law is more than well documented all over the planet due to the loose interpretation combined with the internet. The rich oligarch elite still does what they want, irrespective of laws - get all those spoilt brats bluntly ignoring anything to face the music, lock them up in jail and throw away the key. It is done with mushroom thieves but further up the ladder things are financially facilitated - it seems.  

Get these three basics in order and then we'll address the rampant corruption everywhere, be it i.e. customs etc. next 😉
