FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 03, 2023

Thailand was ranked 9th globally among countries that are at risk of being severely hit by climate change, Natural Resources and Environment Minister Varawut Silpa-archa told investors at the Investment Forum 2023 in Bangkok on Thursday.

“The business sector should adjust its operational strategies to mitigate the impact of climate change as well as promote sustainable growth, such as reducing carbon emission, which grants huge benefits from a small investment,” he said.

Varawut was speaking on the topic “Business Adaptation to Climate Change and New Environment for the Next Era” at the event hosted by One Asset Management.

Also attending was Varawut’s secretary Thanesphol Thanaboonyawat.

The minister pointed out that carbon neutrality was a goal that both the government and private sector should work towards.

One of the most effective approaches is a joint investment in implementing high technology and innovation such as green hydrogen and Direct Air Capture (DAC) technology to extract CO2 directly from the atmosphere, he added.

The minister told the forum that Thailand has recently updated its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) for the Long-term Low Emissions and Development Strategies (LT-LEDS) proposed to the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27) in November last year. He urged businesses to collaborate with the government in realising these NDCs, so global communities can realise Thailand’s commitment to climate change.

Varawut also highlighted the six steps his ministry has adopted to tackle climate change, which also require continued cooperation from the private sector. They are the promotion of bio, circular and green (BCG) economic model to create a new S-curve industry under the concept of environment, social, and corporate governance (ESG); Thai Rice NAMA project that promotes low-emission rice farming; promotion of green investment through the Board of Investment; launching the country’s first clean energy and carbon-credit trading platform; reforestation projects throughout Thailand to increase greenhouse gas absorption; and the drafting of Climate Change Act.

French residents of Thailand cheer latest arrest of alleged scammer

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 03, 2023

A group of French residents of Thailand thanked deputy national police chief General Surachet Hakparn on Thursday after police arrested a fellow countryman they had accused of cheating them out of 100 million baht.

Herve Christian Robert Leonard, 60, was arrested earlier this week. He had been arrested a year ago but police were unable to locate him after he jumped bail.

Leonard had five arrest warrants issued by Thai courts on charges that included extortion, public cheating, and fraud.

Surachet said Leonard had been living intermittently in Thailand for the past 20 years and could speak Thai fluently.

He briefly served as a volunteer for the police in Pattaya in 2019.

Leonard allegedly swindled other French nationals in Thailand while claiming he was helping them transfer property, police said.

He used photos that he had taken with Thai police officers to convince other foreign nationals that had close connections to police that would allow him to solve their problems, police said, adding that he charged a fee of 7 million to 8 million baht per case.

Investigators found that he was still using the expired visa he had when he was let out on bail last year. His visa expired on September 15, 2020.

Surachet said he had asked current and former chiefs of Pattaya’s immigration police to explain why it took so long to arrest the suspect.

Surachet added that next week investigators in charge of Chinese triad cases would question another 110 immigration police officers suspected of helping foreign criminals stay in Thailand.

Nongluck Ajanapanya

New online courses to create a new generation of content creators and influencers are being launched by the Digital Economy Promotion Agency in collaboration with the Thai E-commerce Association, the agency said.

The  courses will provide students with the skills and knowledge required to pursue new careers as digital content creators and influencers, the agency’s president, Nuttapon Nimmanphatcharin, said at the launch of the project on Thursday.

The project is called Connexion.

The swift growth of Thailand’s e-commerce industry is creating lucrative opportunities for skilled content creators and influencers, Nuttapon said.

The Connexion platform will offer two courses: digital content creating and digital influencing. The courses are divided into three levels and are expected to draw about 25,000 students from across the country.

Industry experts will teach both theoretical and practical skills, and at least 200,000 stories and product reviews will be generated by the project, Nuttapon said.

Six roadshows in six regions will be held to raise awareness of the emerging sector, he said.

Students who create outstanding work will participate in the project’s exhibition phase, where they will have the opportunity to present their work to a panel of judges and possibly become a rising star online.

The project will provide opportunities for further promotion and potential collaboration with leading Thai and international companies, Nuttapon said.

Agency training 25,000 Thai content creators and online influencers

Kultirat Phakawatkrailet, president of the Thai E-Commerce Association, said that content creators and influencers play a vital role in publicising and selling products and services online.

Kultirat identified the five basics that entrepreneurs need to be successful in e-commerce: 1) an online store, 2) e-marketing, 3) e-logistics, 4) e-payment, and 5) e-commerce with entertainment (live streaming with tie-ins, for example).

“Content creators and influencers are in demand in the e-commerce and entertainment sector. Their storytelling ability creates a distinct identity for a product or service, instilling desire. Consumers’ decisions today are heavily influenced by their emotions and unique experiences,” Kultirat explained.

Suwita Charanwong, CEO of Tellscore, said it was challenging for a content creator or influencer to gain hundreds of thousands of followers. It requires a wide range of skills, from digital expertise to a high level of understanding of regulations, Suwita said. 

Udomphat Worachot and Apiwit Ektarawong, two well-known Thai content creators, said that being a successful content creator required sincerity, discipline, consistency, determination and the ability to constantly develop new skills.

Nuttapon said Connexion would help expand the Thai e-commerce market.

“We realised we couldn’t compete with the industry’s many large international online marketplaces. As a result, we must train our own people to reap some benefits from these marketplaces while also growing the Thai e-commerce industry,” he explained.

He also said his agency planned to build another platform – Etailligence – that would be an extension of the Connexion project. It will link domestic entrepreneurs with Thailand’s leading e-commerce platforms and have a dashboard to identify trends, analyse market gaps, and track popular products.

The platform will be built in collaboration with Etelligence Co. 

Chaiwut ThanakmanusornChaiwut Thanakmanusorn

Chaiwut Thanakmanusorn, Minister of Digital Economy and Society, praised the Connexion project, saying Thailand was well-positioned to make a solid transition to the digital age.

He also said that digital platforms generate wealth, income, and stability.

Having a large number of talented Thai content creators and influencers will generate more revenue from the domestic and international markets, and spread Thailand’s soft power globally, Chaiwut said.

According to the Thai E-commerce Association, the value of Thailand’s e-commerce market was 770 billion baht in 2022, up 8% year on year. Its value is expected to reach 870 billion baht this year and 1.12 trillion baht by 2025, the association said.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 03, 2023

Eateries, shops and street stalls in Bangkok’s New Chinatown area are once again bustling with customers after having been quiet for two years due to the pandemic.

The New Chinatown (not to be confused with the original Chinatown in Yaowarat area) stretches from Huai Khwang intersection to Pracha Uthit Road.

Most of the people spotted in the area this past week were Chinese nationals who had arrived to mark the Lunar New Year and decided to extend their vacation.

Bangkok's New Chinatown bustling again as Chinese tourists return

Chinese tourists have started returning to Thailand after Beijing lifted its stringent Covid-related travel restrictions on January 8. Thanks to this, the Tourism Authority of Thailand expects some 300,000 arrivals from China in the first quarter and at least 5 million for the whole year. This should push up the number of arrivals this year to at least 25 million.

Scholar Chada Triamvithaya, who has studied the settlement of modern Chinese in Thailand, believes that New Chinatown is mostly populated by immigrants from China’s Guangxi and Yunnan provinces, in the far south and southwest of the mainland, respectively.

According to Chada, Chinese nationals living in New Chinatown are temporary settlers, who are in Thailand for travel or education purposes. She said they prefer to stay in this neighbourhood because of the authentic cuisine on offer at eateries run by people from their country.

New Chinatown is also a haven for shoppers, and the most popular products among Chinese tourists are dried fruit, milk tablets, herbal liniments, honey and rubber pillows.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 03, 2023

Bangkokians awoke to a shroud of fine dust this week with over 70 areas reporting levels of PM2.5 had breached 90 micrograms per cubic metre of air (μg/m3).

Thailand’s safety limit is 50 μg/m3. High levels of PM2.5 pose health risks, especially for people with chronic lung disease.

The Thai Meteorological Department (TMD) forecasts levels of PM2.5 – particles less than 2.5 micrometres in diameter – will rise across much of Thailand through Friday as the fine-dust pollution accumulates in stagnant air.

The government has advised people to wear face masks outdoors and consider working from home on Thursday and Friday.

Website iqair.com reported Bangkok’s air quality index (AQI) at 198 as of 9am on Thursday, making it the third-most polluted city in the world.

The Thai capital is behind only Mumbai in India (AQI 207) and Pakistan’s Lahore (202).

Senior Myanmar military official turns up for repatriation of illegal immigrants from Ranong

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 02, 2023

Senior Myanmar officials made a rare appearance on Thursday at a ceremony in Thailand to send back around 670 illegal Myanmar immigrants who were detained at the Immigration Detention Centre in Ranong province.

Myanmar Navy’s Tanintharyi regional commander Commodore Thein Htoo, and the Myanmar ambassador to Thailand were among the most senior officials from the neighbouring country to join the repatriation ceremony held at the Ranong Customs House’s Lighthouse Pier.

Rear Admiral Suchart Thammapitakvej, deputy commander of Third Naval Area, and Ranong’s Immigration Police chief Colonel Pissanu Sithitoon were among Thai officials attending the event.

Pissanu said on Thursday that these Myanmar migrant workers had staged protests at the detention centre in late January, demanding to return to their country. They had served their term for illegal entry into Thailand but their detention continued as the migrants’ return was awaiting approval from Myanmar authorities.

He said that following the protests, Thai authorities had asked their Myanmar counterparts to expedite the process to take back the detained migrants.

Their return on Thursday came only after approval from high-level Myanmar authorities, according to the Ranong immigration chief.

A source from Ranong’s security circles said on Thursday that this was the first time that senior Myanmar officials, including the regional naval commander and ambassador, had attended a ceremony in the southern province to receive illegal migrants from their country.

According to the source, the approval took a long time because Myanmar authorities had to carefully check the migrants’ records for their possible involvement in the resistance movement in Myanmar.

Citing the Myanmar embassy in Thailand, Myanmar media reported on Wednesday that the detained migrants would return to Myanmar in three batches starting Thursday.

“They will be sent back on February 2, 8 and 15. There has been a few months’ delay because of the outbreak of Covid-19,” an official at the Myanmar embassy was quoted as saying.

The Myanmar migrants, who crossed the border illegally into Thailand, were waiting to be extradited to Kawthaung, the Myanmar town opposite Ranong.

All 6 officers accused of shaking down actress insist they are innocent

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 02, 2023

The six police officers accused of taking a bribe from a Taiwanese actress and her friends while they were visiting Bangkok early last month claimed they are innocent before being jailed on Thursday.

All six say they are innocent of the charges, the commander of the Metropolitan Police Bureau’s Investigation Division, Maj-General Teeradej Thumsutee, said.

The officers were seen being taken to the Central Criminal Court for Corruption and Misconduct Cases in Bangkok’s Taling Chan district.

Each one was accompanied by two officers from the Metropolitan Police Bureau.

While in their vehicle, the six officers were asked by reporters if they were guilty and whether they had a strong case against their accusers.

The stone-faced officers simply looked downward.

They face life in prison after being charged with dereliction of duty and taking bribes.

The lawyer for one of the accused, who declined to be identified, said the officer was distressed by the criminal charges.

The police requested that the court not only jail the accused but also opposed any bail applications because the offences carry severe penalties and the officers could interfere with evidence and witnesses if released, Teeradej said.

Teeradej said that despite the officers’ claims of innocence, investigators had compelling evidence to prove they accepted bribes.

The bribe-taking charges carry a maximum sentence of life imprisonment and a fine of up to 400,000 baht.

Initially, the six policemen were charged with dereliction of duty for failing to take legal action against a group of tourists from Taiwan and Singapore who were found to be carrying vaping devices, which are illegal in Thailand.

The policemen intercepted Taiwanese actress Charlene An’s group at a checkpoint on Ratchadaphisek Road in the early hours of January 5.

The actress subsequently sparked an international uproar with social-media posts accusing Thai police of planting a vaping device on her and demanding 27,000 baht in exchange for her freedom.

Her allegations caught the attention of netizens in Taiwan and Thailand, prompting the Metropolitan Police Bureau to issue an order on January 26 to set up a fact-finding committee.

The bribery charges were filed after a Singaporean man in An’s group told reporters on Wednesday that he paid 27,000 baht to the officers to let the group go free.

Survey shows how resorts and hotels can tap into potential of LGBTQIA+ travellers

Survey shows how resorts and hotels can tap into potential of LGBTQIA+ travellers

Survey shows how resorts and hotels can tap into potential of LGBTQIA+ travellers

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 02, 2023

Operators of resorts and hotels should cater to the needs of LGBTQIA+ communities who are known to be big spenders and like to travel either with friends or alone, according to the results of a recent survey.

The advice came from SCB Economic Intelligence Centre (SCB EIC), the research arm of Siam Commercial Bank.

The EIC conducted a consumer survey from July 8 to 22 last year on the tastes of LGBTQIA+ communities when they want to take a vacation.

Kamonmarn Jaenglom, a senior analyst of SCB EIC, said on Wednesday that the survey had uncovered several interesting aspects of LGBTQIA+ travellers that could help resort and hotel operators gain more worthy customers if they learn to adapt to this group’s travel lifestyle and demands.

Among other things, LGBTQIA+ tourists love lifestyle, convenience and foods as well as special services that can be customised for them, according to the senior analyst.

Kamonmarn said in his analysis that LGBTQIA+ travellers are “unique” and they have been adding new colour and diversity to the tourism business.

The survey found that more than 30% of LGBTQIA+ respondents make more than five trips a year. Hence, paying attention to this group and understanding its needs could create new business opportunities for the tourism sector in the future, the research said.

The study found that LGBTQIA+ tourists like to travel with friends or with their life partners. The survey found that 32% of communities prefer to travel with friends and 28% with spouses. They like to make short trips of two or three days at a time but they can travel frequently.

Kamonmarn said 26% of the respondents like to travel alone and about 40 per cent of these lone travellers like to make long trips of more than four days each time.

He said three key factors that affect the choice of destinations of LGBTQIA+ travellers are: convenient transportation, chic and lifestyle hotels or resorts, and special promotional deals.

LGBTQIA+ travellers love rooms that are decorated in style and hotels and resorts that offer discounts. They also choose accommodations near chic cafes.

They pay more attention to safety and hygiene standards of the places they visit more than general tourists, the analysis added.

The survey found that more than 80% of LGBTQIA tourists like to visit places like retreats, and relax. They also love to hang out at beautiful cafes or like to look for delicious meals at restaurants in their destinations. Many of them also love to combine work and travel and hence sought facilities that would allow them to work from hotels.

Kamonmarn said 56% of the group who travel with friends like to seek blessings and pay their respects to famous sacred things at temples, while most lone travellers like to make cultural trips to study the way of life of local people.

Interesting resorts and hotels for LGBTQIA+ travellers must be close to nature but must have modern communication facilities and must be decorated in style, the analysis added.

Survey shows how resorts and hotels can tap into potential of LGBTQIA+ travellers

Kamonmarn said more than 44% of the respondents attached importance to having modern communication facilities and 40% focus on the decorations of their rooms, especially those who travel with spouses.

The survey found that most who travel alone or with families preferred staying near shopping sites or in the heart of towns for convenience.

Moreover, more than 40% would select 4-5 star hotels and 74% of the respondents would book their accommodations via online booking platforms.

The analysis also offered three strategies for operators of hotels and resorts or tour operators to woo LGBTQIA+ travellers.

Tour operators should offer exclusive packages to those who like to travel with friends, and the packages should cover chic rooms in a quiet atmosphere at retreats with special meals and parties at night. Special and attractive deals could also draw the attention of this group.

The hotels and resorts should have advanced communication facilities to allow LGBTQIA+ travellers to work in line with the “work from anywhere” trend.

The survey found that LGBTQIA+ respondents pay attention to “work from hotel” facility more than general tourists by two times.

Resorts and hotels operators should also decorate their places to look unique and memorable. They should also offer services that can be customised to each traveller of this diversified community and they should promote customisable services via several communication channels to reach the LGBTQIA+ communities, the survey said.

Ministry ends regulations governing student hairstyle

Ministry ends regulations governing student hairstyle

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 02, 2023

The Ministry of Education has revoked its regulations on hairstyle of students and will allow each school to frame their own rules, with input from students and related parties.

The ministerial regulation signed by Education Minister Trinuch Thienthong dated January 16, 2023 was published on the Royal Gazette website on Thursday, stipulating that the 2020 ministerial regulations on student hairstyles is being revoked with immediate effect.

Last week, Trinuch had said that the ministry would allow students, parents, school directors and related parties to jointly decide on acceptable hairstyles for each school. She hoped that the new approach would help eliminate the controversy of students lacking freedom in managing their own body.

The aim of the new approach is to find a mutual ground for hairstyle that makes every party happy, while maintaining the order of educational institutions, she added.

The hairstyle regulations updated in 2020 allowed male students to have longer hair than allowed under previous regulations, but banned perming and colouring.

Many Thai students have been protesting against the hairstyle regulations since it was updated in 2020, with the group, “Bad Students”, claiming that it was still not granting enough freedom for students to express themselves, while many schools are still enforcing rules framed in 1975.
