Thais Want Gov't to Spur Economy

A majority of people in Thailand want the government to take measures to spur the economy, trade and investment in order to build people's confidence, according to an opinion survey by Suan Dusit Rajabhat University.
The poll was conducted between May 15-20 on 1,466 people throughout the country to compile their opinion on what the government should do to build people's confidence. The National Council for Peace and Order is about to enter its fourth year in office, TNA reported.
The people's opinion can be used by the government to improve its work efficiency and to better meet the people's needs, said the pollster.
A majority—80.15%—of those surveyed suggest the government should take measures to spur the economy, trade and investment.
Other suggestions are for the government to solve bread-and-butter issues (78.99%); to allocate its budget more effectively (77.08%); to help farmers by stabilizing prices of farm produce (74.22%); to ask for people's opinions before enforcing a law (72.65%) and quickly solve the insurgency problem in the southern border provinces and restore peace in the region (68.28%).
Those polled also want the government to: improve the country's infrastructure and lay down foundations for mass transport systems (64.26%); concentrate on education development, without frequent policy changes (62.76%); allow public monitoring of the government's work (59.35%); and, promote a better quality of life and provide welfare benefits to cover people of all age groups (55.67%).
