Thailand’s Finance Minister Korn Chatikavanij on Tuesday conceded that a move by non-governmental organisations to seek a court order suspending the operations of industrial projects in industrial estates nationwide could shake the confidence of entrepreneurs, reported state news agency TNA.

His statement was in response to the Central Administrative Court’s injunction against operations of 76 industrial projects in the Map Ta Phut Industrial Estate in the eastern province of Rayong for their non-compliance with the country’s basic environment protection law.

Korn said the government must find a middle ground between environmental protection and driving of country’s economy. He said that amending the National Environmental Quality Act through parliamentary means must take at least several months.

Accordingly it is necessary for the National Environment Committee to issue a regulation requiring industries in various areas to comply with the Article 67 of the Constitution governing environmental protection in communities.
