Bangkok – The Thailand Nightlight and Entertainment Business Association and representatives of artists, singers, entertainers, and night workers meeting General Supot Malaniyom, secretary-general of the National Security Council (NSC), today, May 19th.

 

Association President Katawut Thongthai, or Ajarn/Artist Kai Marijuana, told the Associated Press yesterday, May 18th, that the meeting aimed to discuss the potential of business reopening and government assistance for entertainment venues.

 

He stressed that the government had responded and provided financial aid on some issues previously, such as a 5000-baht remedy for business entrepreneurs and employees, but such treatment did not solve the root cause. The only way to solve it was to allow the reopening of the nightlife business in full and not as converted restaurants with many restrictions and limited operating hours, which is the current situation.

With everything else in the country open the government is going to be hard pushed to keep this avenue of business closed.

Hopefully the bars and nightlife venues will open normally soon.  This way a lot of people will again have something to occupy their time.

They have the soldiers and the guns. They can do what they want. Thailand belongs to them. Why do you think these soldiers have been in power for 8 years and still no sign of them getting out and getting an elected government in?

From what I hear, quite a few venues are operating similar to pre-Covid days now...... they have little choice I believe. There may be some little concession to authority, like  temperature checks at the entrances... they don't like to let go of control completely, all in a single step.
