Centre of attention
« on: August 24, 2020, 09:18:15 AM »

The government unveils its latest talking-shop as part of efforts to rehabilitate the sputtering economy.
Another government-backed centre has been established for the purpose of managing an economy rattled by the pandemic crisis, with redundancy and business interest as the core qualms expressed over the move.

The cabinet on Aug 23 gave the green light to establish a centre to handle the country's economic rehabilitation from the coronavirus crisis.

The centre's main task is to take charge of proposing economic solutions to tackle economic problems and supervise the government's economic rehabilitation efforts.

The Center for Economic Situation Administration (CESA), tasked with working in the same way as the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, is chaired by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha.

The centre comprises 22 committees with representation from all economic ministers, the Interior and Labour ministries, the Bank of Thailand's governor and the heads of three private-sector organisations.

The secretary-general of the National Economic and Social Development Council is the centre's secretary.
The cabinet also approved setting up a committee to drive economic management. This panel will be chaired by Pailin Chuchotthaworn, an adviser to Gen Prayut and the former deputy transport minister.
Although the intention seems to be about accelerating economic stimulus measures, sceptics are asking whether the centre is redundant to existing ministerial works and could even be a front for business lobbyists rather than dedicated to the public interest.  โป๊กเกอร์ เท็กซัส
