Prayut declares battle against inequality
The Nation

BANGKOK: -- Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha vowed yesterday to make progress in combating social inequality.

"The disparity is a big challenge to the government. We have to create jobs and income for people and solve the corruption problem," said the premier.

He said reducing inequality did not mean making everybody equal, because that is not democracy.

"Today we are following democracy. You can only invest as much as you can afford. If you have no capital you need access to a source of finance. We can help you with this and, by doing so, reduce inequality. But this doesn't mean handing out money to all people equally," he said.

The prime minister also expressed concerns over the country's development, saying the government had to work in a hands-on way to bring progress.

"Our neighbour countries have developed rapidly, but we lag behind because of internal fighting," said Prayut.

The premier said that since his first day in the job, he had been listing problems that needed to be solved before the country's income could be lifted.

However Prayut, who is also chief of National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO), expressed satisfaction with the NCPO's performance over the past four months. Referring to a joint meeting between the Cabinet and the NCPO on Tuesday, he said the government and the NCPO had to focus on solving the country's problems in a proactive way.

In ten years time little will of changed. That rings true if the dems or the shins were in charge. Same elite families fighting for power and using/shitting on the small guy.

At least he's recognizing this problem and agrees that investment and access to capital is important but shouldn't be a handout.

I miss the details on how exactly this is going to be approached.
Just saying it is a start, but demands action to follow up on it.

By merely saying it, the objective has been realized.

A hefty kick of the can down the road.

That was sarcasm, right . . . ?

That list, now simply referred to as the PPPP, not to be mistaken with any connection with/to the PPP.

Premier Prayuth's Perpetual Problems!

I'm sure he's continually adding to what is likely an extensive list already!

He seems to be taking a big bite, I hope it's not more than he can chew, he may be more than a mere footnote in the history books of Thailand, he may live on to take out a full chapter for himself! It's nice to see someone "stepped up to the plate"!

I wish him the best of luck!
