PM stresses importance of Thai LanguageJuly 28th, 2008 - 11:09 am ICT by Amrit Rashmisrisethi
Prime Minister and Defence Minister Samak Sundaravej called on Thai people to place importance to the Thai language during his weekly program show on NBT today (July, 27th) on the occasion of National Thai Language’s Day on July 29th. He said that Thai people should use the language correctly according to its grammar and usage.
The premier said at the end of the program that there was no political topic during today’s program, only topics on history and issues which people usually don’t touch upon.
However, the premier criticized the public broadcasting act as its organic and relevant laws took effect before the act was passed in March this year.
