The committee met with the national strategy committee's panels on security and environmental friendly development today to shares ideas about reforms to be integrated into the national strategy.

Theerapat Prayurasiddhi, the committee vice chair, said the committee considers security in food, water and energy as part of the country’s long-term security. As such, these issues should be addressed in the national strategy.

The strategy is being developed by the national strategy committee, which has six panels to help in its task. They will coordinate with 13 national reform committees on putting the national strategy and the reform plans as required by the national strategy law and national reform law.

The reform committees are required to submit their reform plans by next month. These will then be considered by the government and the national strategy committee, to ensure that they are in line with the long-term strategy.

The committee has also finished the second hearing on its reform plan draft in the South. The event was held recently in Nakhon Si Thammarat province. Hearings will be held in the North and Central regions before the committee submits its plan to the government.
