On the initial stage, he said the government would like the apartment to understand the call of your boat operators nut at the same time would also like the tour boat operators to be open-minded and to understand that why the entry fee was imposed at these rates. He said that the current rates, 400 baht for foreign adult and 200 baht for child, have been used for the past 10 years, and was not just recently increased. He also said that the reason for decline in tourist numbers might come from the fact more tour boats were registered.

REUTERS/Phil Noble LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's ruling Conservatives won a parliamentary by-election in the north-west English region of Copeland on Friday, taking control of a once safe seat held by the opposition Labour Party and the first such gain by a ruling party since 1982. The Conservatives, who had been bookmakers favourites ahead of the vote, won by a margin of more than 2,000 votes from Labour. The vote, which was triggered by the resignation of the incumbent lawmaker, underscores the difficulties Labour faces in the north of England following last year's vote to leave the European Union, at which the party's pro-EU stance alienated many of its Eurosceptic working class voters.

  8. DPM confident economic growth trend to continue into this year BANGKOK, 24 February 2017 (NNT) – The Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs has expressed satisfaction with Thailand’s economic figures in 2016, expressing belief exports this year will grow 3-4 percent. Deputy Prime Minister Somkid Jatusripitak, in a speech titled “Push Forward: Looking to Economy 4.0 in 2017”, made known the Thai economy grew 3.2 percent last year even though its export segment was depressed by global factors. He cited the fact as an indication the government’s support measures are paying off. The DPM continued that for sustained economic stability, exports have to improve as they comprise 60-70 percent of the GDP. He called for major trade partners like the US, Europe and China to be maintained and for more work to be done to trade with the CLMV region. He believes exports can grow 3-4 percent this year if Thailand can improve its border trade. He affirmed the government would manage its expenditures and continue to invest in major projects to inject money into the economy but noted it would encourage large companies to assist small technology and innovation firms to spur new business. -- nnt 2017-02-24

    Britain's Labour Party hold off UKIP to win Stoke by-election REUTERS LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's opposition Labour Party won a parliamentary by-election for the Stoke Central seat on Friday, fending off a challenge from the anti-European Union UK Independence Party which had hoped to capitalise on the area's pro-Brexit stance.

  11. Britain's Labour Party hold off UKIP to win Stoke by-election REUTERS LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's opposition Labour Party won a parliamentary by-election for the Stoke Central seat on Friday, fending off a challenge from the anti-European Union UK Independence Party which had hoped to capitalise on the area's pro-Brexit stance. Labour won by a comfortable margin over UKIP, with Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives in third. The former industrial city had been a safe Labour seat since 1950, but the party's support for staying in the EU put it at odds with 70 percent of Stoke voters who backed Brexit. UKIP's failure to capitalise on that sentiment, despite pouring resources into the campaign and putting party leader Paul Nuttall forward as its candidate, is expected to raise questions about the party's ability to build its influence in parliament, where it currently has just one seat.
