Moreover, Ms. Methinee Sukhontharak (เมธินี สุคนธรักษ์), the Director-General of the Agriculture Department, will become the Director of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) while incumbent Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Mr. Suraphon Theraphat (สรพล เถระพัฒน์), will take the position of Inspector General of the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives.
