The President of the Thai Chamber of Commerce (TCC), Mr. Pramon Suthivong (ประมนต์ สุธีวงศ์), views that PM Somchai’s Government have small number of experienced non-MP ministers, especially in his economic team. He however says new economic team will accelerate scores of economic projects immediately, which will result in positive consequences to Thai economy.
Having learnt of the names of new economic ministerial team, Mr. Pramon says to have the Senior Advisor to the Fiscal Policy Research Institute, Mr. Olarn Chairprawat (โอฬาร ไชยประวัติ), join the team will be helpful in terms of addressing economic issues. Despite the concern over retardation of economic projects as previous industrial minister has been replaced, Mr. Pramon says Mr.Suchart Thadadamrongwej, newly appointed Minister of Finance, will instead help carry on scores of the projects.
At this time of national crisis, Mr. Pramon advises the Government’s priority is to restore confidence to investors and seek solution to heal political turmoil as soon as possible.
