The Social Development and Human Security Minister, Juti Krairiksh, led a group of outstanding children and youths to meet with the Prime Minister before a cabinet meeting on Tuesday. The young representatives were selected for their contributions in the field of art and culture. They are to organize a fair on Saturday (Sept 21) to encourage young people to express their thoughts and ideas, improve their competencies and show their creativity.

The Culture Minister, Ittipol Khunpluem, has helped promote an event to promote Thai traditions and way of life, including a merit-making ceremony in Nakhon Si Thammarat next month, a Buddha statue bathing ceremony in Phetchabun province and the Vegetarian Festival in Chonburi and Phuket provinces.

The Prime Minister said he will check the water drainage issue during his visit to Nakhon Si Thammarat to ensure that the government is managing water resources thoroughly. The Prime Minister also paid homage to Buddha Thammacha, the main Buddha statue of Phetchabun province. During the Buddha statue bathing ceremony, he prayed for peace and order in the country and for all civil servants to succeed in their work. He called on everyone to recognize the importance of the country’s culture and traditions and help preserve them. He said the country won’t move forward if its citizens forget their origins.
