Of course the BIG “kick-back” projects must be highest priority now…

Stay the course.

In some way , he is right .

Mega projects , once approved and initiated , ( and serving a good cause ) should not be abandoned .

There are enough derelict building projects already ...

Mega projects....paid for how?  Gave away dozens of billions to the Military over the past 8 years and now the cupboard is bare, with a weak economy and borrowing costs rising.

Prayut said the one month during which he was suspended from active duty has given him time to

tot up his pension pot and prioritise those areas which will give the best return.

In his first reaction to the ruling by the Constitutional Court which reaffirms his premiership, Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha pledged to forge ahead with mega-projects initiated by his government.

Only if foreign powers are interested in financing them.. Prayut has nothing to offer.

like the High Speed Bullet trains with no track to run on????????

 

FILE - Thailand's PM Prayuth Chan-ocha stands next to a model of a high speed rail during the groundbreaking ceremony of the cooperation between Thailand and China on the Bangkok-Nong Khai high speed rail development in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand, Dec. 21, 2017.

 

July 2022:

BANGKOK — 

Thailand’s recent pledge to finish a long-delayed high-speed rail line linking it to China through Laos within six years (2028) is reigniting doubts about the country’s commitment and whether the $12 billion megaproject will pay off.

Chinese banks might have been interested in financing these projects at one time, especially at above market rates.  With major losses from a souring domestic and now a worsening worldwide economy, that seems unlikely now.

Prayut has the opportunity to bow out gracefully.

The court has given him the verdict he wanted.

If he gets te-instated as a PM ,he's courting trouble (protests etc)...even dissent among govt members.

We'll see how this plays out.

I'm standing on the view that he's not coming back.
