The Prime Minister has ordered all economic agencies as well as the Ministry of Interior to find employment for low-income earners and farmers as to boost their income.

A report from Government House has indicated Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-ocha has ordered the Ministry of Commerce, Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives, Ministry of Interior and other offices related to economics to find ways to generate employment for low-income earners as to bolster their revenue.

He suggested the government directly hire those in need such as farmers who do not own their own land and students in between semesters, saying they could be put to conducting surveys and other fact finding work.

The PM said work should be appropriate and beneficial to the particular area of those employed as well as in step with the civil-state approach. He called for collaboration between the state, private sector and general public and asked that private businesses support this effort.
