According to Commerce Minister General Chatchai Sarikalaya, the government will be meeting with leaders from Myanmar and 6 other nations along the Mekong River to discuss the possibility for Thailand to use the water from both regional rivers.
The study, which is expected to be completed within a year, is now underway to determine how it should be carried out. The Commerce Minister also said the ongoing drought crisis would not cause the prices of drinking water to rise.
Manufacturers have reiterated that supplies of bottled drinking water are more than ample to meet domestic demands. The Department of Internal Trade has demanded that bottled water of up to 600 milliliters in size must not be sold higher than 7 baht each, and 10 baht if chilled.
As for those with the size of 1,500 milliliters, they must be sold at no more than 14 baht apiece.
