Carpe Diem : What would you like the new government to take action fast

General Prayuth has proclaimed Thailand open for business and he has surrounded himself with experienced technocrats, promising to spur growth,
attack corruption and
return happiness to the people.

He would like stocks to soar,
consumers confidence to jump,
executives to hail the return of political stability.


During the past decade, Thailand was crippled by gridlock and under constant siege from street protests. Right now Thailand needs a competent leader to restore economic growth.

Has it been going as planned?
Has he been creating any drastic changes to the country GDP? Components of GDP

Has the government managed to take more actions to influence components of GDP? What has he been doing with the Y =   C + I + G +  (X-M)?



In other words, what does the government do to spur efficiently and more or promote
Consumption (C), Investment (I), Government Spending (G), Export  (X) and Import (M)?

And what does he do to enhance transparency and the so-called Good Governance?

To analyse what the government has been doing we have to take a closer look at consumers Index first so that we can see the present situation of consumption in the country.

So far these are some measures we have seen taken by the government.

The government has issued the financial handouts to rural areas, offered loans to farmers and asked consumer- product makers to freeze prices.



The government has also made a significant attempt to equip Thailand to compete in a fast-changing world. It has designed a plan for a digital economy to compliment Thailand's long-standing expertise in making hard disc drives and autos.



Thai companies have been supported to boost productions to meet the shift in consumers' preferences.

Research and development fund has been more efficiently allocated with an intention to enhance competitive advantages in the new era of ASEAN and the future world.



Projects to strengthen economic infrastructure have been encouraged to improve a better future for the national investment sector. These plans include an express train project to link U-Tapao Airport and Map Ta Phut Special Economic Zone near the Gulf of Thailand to Kaeng Khoi in Sara Buri, which is one of national transportation hubs and further going northwards via Nakhon Ratchasima to Nong Khai and across the Mekong into our neighbouring country. The route would link up with Chinese Yunnan province, Laos and Myanmar and revolutionise regional trade.

Sino-Thai railway route on track to start this year is the headline of Bangkok Post of Friday, January 16, 2015.

The government has also designed a policy to create a cogent, up - to - date strategy to move Thailand up the value chain. Besides, more emphasis has been placed on smart and substantial investments in education.






The government is weeding out graft, lifting wasteful subsidies and upgrading roads, bridges, ports power grids and digital economy infrastructures to make the national economy more competitive.

As regard, the good governance here is one of the active measures taken recently: the impeachment results as reported by the Bangkok Post.
