National –

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O’Cha this morning, September 22nd, unveiled plans to attract all sectors nationwide to transform the country into a progressive society with a sustainable economy.

The Prime Minister stated five main goals for the government’s work to transform the country during the online opening ceremony of “Mission to Transform: 13 Goals to Transform Thailand” organized by the Office of the National Economic and Social Development Council (NESDC) this morning.

The goals include:

  1. Restructure the country’s production to become an innovation-based economy.

  2. Develop workers’ ability and quality of life to reach the new world standard and develop Thai people’s quality of life for the 21st century.

  3. Create a society of opportunity and equality. The government, according to them, has tirelessly attempted to eliminate inequality in many matters, including improving income inequality by introducing the state welfare card to help support living expenses.

  4. Create sustainability in Thailand by prioritizing the environment and ecosystem matters over the country’s development in all aspects, including the ability to cope with climate change.

  5. Prepare Thailand to cope with risks and changes under the new global context while emphasizing the developments of quality infrastructures and the government management system in order to provide the fullest access for the people.

The Prime Minister stressed that the country’s development must crucially apply in accordance with the changes outside the country, along with the conditions of internal factors and the potential of the country in general.

“The most important thing that will make the mission a success is not only from the development plan alone but also the cooperation from all sectors, which is an important driving force for changing Thailand,” he concluded.
