The Ministry of Finance (MOF) will launch a set of stimulus measures later this year, aiming to boost Thai economic growth higher than the target for this year, a source from the ministry's Fiscal Policy Office said yesterday.



MOF will also prepare a Bt41-Bt42 billion budget, or Bt3.5 billion per month, for allocations to 11 million low-income earners eligible for state welfare in order to stimulate the grassroot economy, particularly through trade at about 6,000 blue-flag shops.
