BANGKOK (Reuters) - A multi-billion dollar infrastructure fund planned by the Thai government, first announced in 2015, will be launched in October, delayed again from September, a senior finance ministry official said on Wednesday.

 

The government aims to use the "Thailand Future Fund", intended to eventually reach 100 billion baht ($3.06 billion), to finance investments to boost economic growth. Its rollout has been repeatedly delayed.

 

On Wednesday, the ministry filed an application for a fund offering with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Prapas Kong-Ied, director-general of the State Enterprise Policy Office, told reporters.

 

The ministry aims to meet potential investors next month and sell shares in October.

 

The fund will initially sell units worth 45 billion baht to the public, with an expected interest rate of 3-4 percent, Prapas said, adding the fund units will be listed on the Thai bourse.

Cut conscription 20B, stop buying useless military junks 30B, sell the aircraft carrier and airship 10B. reduce the number of generals 10B and cut the fats of the defence budget by say 30B. No need for infrastructure fund which is just more borrowings and more debts.

I think the prices are a bit high for the Aircraft carrier,and the Blimp

has leaks,most likely shriveled up in a warehouse somewhere.

You may be right. What about seizing some of those corrupt generals unusual wealth and assets. That should be worth quite a lot.
