Slow growth in line with regional movement: Yingluck
Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra promises more actions to boost domestic spending and investment.
While saying that Thailandâ€™s economy is still growing, she admitted that the growth slows in line with regional movement.
She said that while the government will see how to boost consumer confidence which would spur spending, the government-sector efficiency must be enhanced to facilitate more investment. Many companies are prepared to invest in Thailand, she insisted.
Meanwhile, Commerce Minister Niwatthumrong Boonsongpaisan is instructed to discuss with the private sector on how to boost exports in the long term.
"All parties need to lend a hand to brighten up the atmosphere," she said.
