National 20-year strategy plan takes effect

National 20-year strategy plan takes effect

By The Nation

 

The junta's 20-year national strategy plan took effect on Saturday when it was published on the Royal Gazette.

 

The Royal Gazette announced that His Majesty the King signed an endorsement of the plan on October 8 and it was countersigned by Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha on the same day.

 

The strategy plan was approved by the Cabinet on June 5 and it was approved by the National Legislative Assembly on July 6.

 

The 20-year national strategy, highlighted in the Constitution, obliges future governments to adhere to the plans. Cabinet members could be impeached if they refuse to comply with it.

 

Political parties and critics have lamented that the strategy, written with limited public participation, would overrule future elected governments and force them to carry out the junta’s legacy.

Im sure the ones who made it have seen it.. its a secret for all others 😂

 

Shameful, i am not against long term strategy especially here in Thailand where plans change with each new government and things don't get done, but this sounds too restrictive.

This 20 yr plan thing .. What is it , what does it encompass as It doesnt comes across as any more than hamstringing with added straight-jacketing any future administration who will be compelled to continue with dogma beloved of the currant set-up .. It'll end in tears in a way that seems to be the only way things get changed around here ..

Maybe it covers the Chinese railway so it is finished by then. Oops, no my mistake, that will be finished in three years time:

"Transport Minister Arkhom Termpittay-apaisith said a total of 13 construction contracts for the Bangkok-Nakhon Ratchasima route would be open for bidding in 2018 so that construction could be completed and the system become operational in 2021."

 

Or perhaps it's the "Foreigner database to be ready in six months. The order was given by Deputy Prime Minister General Prawit Wongsuwan" That was in February - maybe 20 years would cover that one?

It has not been written yet. Now that it’s gazetted (surprised that it took 3 months), a steering committee will be appointed to select 6 sub-groups who will be responsible for writing the plan. Stand corrected if others have better information. However the long delay for royal endorsement may meant more than meets the eyes. Maybe just maybe, the detail strategies will be written during elected government IMO.

Another rogue Military coup would rip up this strategy immediately, something this rogue leader knows a few things about ?

Unfortunately, the totally accepted ideals of solving our problems with cycles of military coups and continued propped-up oligarchy is a sad state.

Thailand lacks the persistence to meet any 20 year plan. As soon as it is not fun or 'sanuk' the effort will be abandoned and never spoken about again
