New Finance Minister Arkhom Termpittayapaisith said that his economic policy would focus on boosting people’s purchasing power, assisting the tourism sector and accelerating state budget disbursement.
On his first day in office, Arkhom added that his urgent task was to assist businesses suffering from the impact of the Covid-19 outbreak.
He said he had also discussed with Deputy Prime Minister Supattanapong Punmeechaow on plans to boosting liquidity of tourism operators.
When asked if the existing Bt1-trillion borrowing was sufficient to rev up the economy, he said that would depend on the speed of the economic recovery.
The government has continued to launch stimulus packages to revive the economy from the fallout of the pandemic.
