Former Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance M.L.Pridiyathorn Devakula says he believes that the replacement of the finance minister of the current government will not affect the private sector and the overall economy.

M.L.Pridiyathorn says the political situation and the replacement of the finance minister will not affect the overall economy and investment in the private sector as the government has no policy which may pose threat to the investment. He says the economic growth during the six months of the year is as high as 5.9%.

However, the former finance minister refuses to comment on the political situation as he says the government has many advisors.
