Junta chief Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha Friday assured visiting Chinese businessmen that an interim prime minister and Cabinet will be appointed in three months.
Prayuth was speaking to the businessmen, who were led by deputy chairman of the Thai Chamber of Commerce Wichai Atsaratsakon to visit him at the Army headquarters.
Prayuth called on the Chinese businessmen to cooperate with the National Council for Peace and Order to do away with conflicts of interest and corruption to bring down the prices of goods and construction projects.
He said the NCPO also supported free trade and fair competition among businessmen. Prayuth also called on the Chinese businessmen to transfer technologies to their Thai counterparts.
Prayuth urged the businessmen to tell Chinese tourists that the curfew in the kingdom was not affecting local residents or tourists.
