by Joseph O' Connor

 

govt.jpg

Amid both stinging criticism and defence of the government from a range of top officials and business leaders over the current crisis facing the kingdom with record levels of infection, hospitalisations and deaths, some top business people and economic analysts are urging the government to focus on the vaccination drive even ahead of supporting the economy, at this point, as the most cost-effective solution to bringing the country out of the morass it now finds itself in. These include the Vice Chairman of the Federation of Thai Industries, Kriengkrai Thiennukul (centre right) and Thai Air Asia boss Tassapon Bijleveld (centre left).

 

Government’s handling of the vaccination campaign is being openly criticised for being too short-sighted and lacking ambition.
