Family of Thai Energy Researcher Returns from Japan

The family of a Thai researcher in Japan have returned to Thailand over concerns of a meltdown at the damaged nuclear plants in Fukushima.

At Ubon Ratchathani International Airport, Chompoonut Morachart, a professor from Ubonratchathani Rajabhat University, together with relatives, has welcomed home her 31 year old daughter Sirichon Morachart, as well as her son in law and six year old niece from Tokyo.

Sirichon said her husband is an energy researcher at a private Japanese private company, and her family has lived in Tokyo for the past two years.

During their stay in Japan, they experienced many small earthquakes, as they are quite common, especially in Tokyo, but the most recent quake was the most severe.

She added that for this reason, her family has decided to return to Thailand as they are uncertain about the situation in Japan.

The Japanese government declared a nuclear emergency following an explosion at a nuclear power plant in Fukushima Prefecture.

Her husband then asked for the company's permission to return to Thailand.

She noted that although the explosions are 260 kilometers from Tokyo, there could be an explosion at another nuclear power plant in Tokai, only 120 kilometers from Tokyo.

Sirichon added that a number of Thai people are stranded in Japan, as the price of air tickets has increased two times higher than usual.

She called on people who plan to build nuclear power plants in Thailand to think twice.

Meanwhile, representatives of local residents in all 18 districts in Kalasin Province gathered at Yang Talad District Office to express their disapproval of a plan to build a nuclear power plant in the district, as they fear the risks of the plant, such as the recent events in Japan.

A leader of the protesters claimed that the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand is surveying the area for the construction of a nuclear power plant.

He said if the construction is carried out without a public hearing, they will escalate their protest.

He called on the provincial governor to seek a solution to the problem.

Kasit: Thai govt to fully assist Japan

BANGKOK, 16 March 2011 (NNT) – The Thai Government will speedily provide full assistance to Japan as the country is facing with difficulties after an 8.9 magnitude and a deadly tsunami attack on 11 March 2011.

According to Foreign Minister Kasit Piromya, the ministry has been assisting Japan in mainly three ways. The ministry will send blankets, garments, personal items and instant food to the Japanese government since at present the weather is relatively cold.

The Thai Government recently has approved a budget of 200 million baht plus the provision of 15,000 tons of rice for Japan. The ministry is now working with the Board of Trade of Thailand to coordinate with companies and factories to help manufacture products for disaster victims.

Meanwhile, the Friends in Need (of ‘Pa’) Volunteers Foundation of the Thai Red Cross has also been requested to manufacture related products in this mission.

Mr Kasit however voiced his concerns with the operation to contact Thai nationals in Japan because communication system in some areas remained out of service. He said the ministry would keep contacting Thai people via networks of Thai people in Japan such as Thai restaurants.

The Minister then asked Thai people to donate to help disaster victims in Japan, and the ministry would send all donations to the Japanese Red Cross accordingly.

BoT allows banks to help clients affected by disasters in Japan

BANGKOK, 16 March 2011 (NNT) – The Bank of Thailand (BoT) has given a green light for commercial banks to assist their customers affected by the tremor and tsunami in Japan without seeking official approval.

BoT Deputy Governor for Financial Institutions Stability Krirk Vanikkul stated that commercial banks can choose to bypass some of the regulations without seeking approval from the BoT in order to assist their customers impacted by the recent devastation.

Mr Krirk noted that the current regulations that the BoT had been using to oversee operation of financial institutions were relatively flexible.

The Deputy Governor explained that the BoT had to consider the needs of the society and assess if they would affect stability of the Thai financial system or not. He said so far there had been no negative impact on Thailand; therefore, commercial banks could help their customers freely.

Thai financial institutions at present have been granting over 250 billion baht loan. The portion of credits given to Japanese related investment does not account for much of the total assets in the Thai financial system of over 1.6-1.7 trillion baht.
