The new government will put forward economic measures to be carried out by a new economic team with the cooperation of every political party. He said the cabinet ministers are well suited to their portfolios.

 

Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam said today the lawsuit filed earlier in a foreign country against Deputy Agriculture and Cooperatives Minister Capt Thammanat Prompao, no means disqualified him as an MP or Minister.
