Thai PM’s 8 strategies for AEC 2015


Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has instructed all concerned agencies to work with the private sector in preparing the country for the Asean Economic Community (AEC) in 2015, while the government has outlined eight key strategies to ensure the country's readiness.

In a pre-recorded episode of her weekly TV programme "Yingluck Government Meets the People", the prime minister said she had chaired a second workshop for state agencies and the private and civil sectors on Wednesday.

The aim was to follow up on various issues decided during the first meeting when all ministries had been assigned to assess Thailand's readiness and competencies in relation to various Asean directives and regulations.

At the second meeting, Yingluck said the government was briefed on the readiness of each industry-assessed state agency. The premier said she has ordered the ministries to jointly work with the private sector to re-evaluate readiness in all aspects and present information to the Cabinet within two weeks.

Yingluck added the government has outlined eight strategies to prepare the country for the AEC in the next three years. The strategies include:

- promotion of competitiveness of products, services, trade, and investment;
- improvement of quality of life and social protection;
- development of basic infrastructure and logistics system to enhance connectivity;
- human resources development to meet Asean education standards;
- improvement of law and regulations to facilitate trade and investment;
- promotion of public awareness about the AEC;
- strengthening security issues;
- enhancing urban competitiveness to take advantage of opportunities in Asean

Yingluck said the Cabinet is committed to ensuring that the country is ready for the AEC at the national level, while four subcommittees will also be set up.

These subcommittees will implement the eight strategies at the regional and provincial levels. There will be a joint committee with the private sector, a subcommittee on basic infrastructure, and a subcommittee on law amendment.
