Gen. Prem believes HM the King's guiding principles can solve people's problems once they are being applied

General Prem Tinsulanonda, the President of the Privy Council and Statesman, believes that if everyone follows His Majesty the King’s philosophy of Sufficient Economy, poverty problems would be solved.

Gen. Prem said people should apply His Majesty’s guiding principles in their daily lives. He said His Majesty’s guiding principles can be used to work out economic, social and political issues.

He said he would like the general public to adhere to His Majesty’s royal speeches and guiding principles.

Prem urges Thais to adopt self-sufficiency economy as advised by His Majesty

Privy Council Chairman General Prem Tinsulanonda Friday urged all sides to apply the lessons of His Majesty the King's speeches, especially on the self-sufficiency economy, to solve the country's poverty.

Prem gave a speech at a seminar hosted by the Foundation for International Human Resource Development on the creation of a learning society according to His Majesty the King's initiatives and his self-sufficiency philosophy.

His Majesty had been talking about the "New Theory" for more than 20 years but people at the time gave little interest, as they were keen on becoming a newly industrialised country, he said.

Now people had turned to and become confident in this theory, which had never been out-of-date and would remain applicable in the future, he said.

"Even United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan, who conferred the Human Development Lifetime Achievement Award on His Majesty on May 26, said at the Foreign Affairs Ministry that if human development meant to prioritise people, nothing was greater than development according to His Majesty's guideline," he added.

As the country's greatest problem was poverty, using the self-sufficiency economy theory would help solve it, said Prem.

No Mr. Prem, the country's greatest problem is corruption and inequality. The corruption leads to both the financial and personal impoverishment of many citizens and also leads to the gross inequality between the ruling elite and the masses. Focusing only on poverty instead of equally focusing on the corruption and inequality will not lead to any improvements.
