Bangkok street vendors can now enjoy continuing doing their businesses at allocated spots specified by local authorities, after a Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) committee tasked with maintaining the orderliness of the capital has extended its permit to street vendors from one to two years, according to Deputy Bangkok Governor Sakontee Pattiyakul.

 

In the short-term the BMA will work with other related agencies in managing public spaces, in relation to street vendors, while, in the long-term, City Hall will make the locations clearer in which vendors are allowed, taking into account the local population’s requirements, tourism promotion, with a focus on unique communal and cultural traits, and the businesses of small operators.

 

Street vendors at Soi Ari in Bangkok’s Phayathai district talked to Thai PBS about what they think about the extension, as well as government measures in helping those affected by the pandemic to stay afloat.

Seems like a good idea...
