BANGKOK, March 15 (Xinhua) -- The Thai government has pushed forward bills on national reform and a 20-year national strategy which will likely be endorsed by the National Legislative Assembly and turned into laws.
The cabinet headed by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha approved on Tuesday the national reform and strategy bills for which varied committees will be set up to handle the detailed implementation of the bills toward Thailand's economic and social development schemes after they become laws.
Korbsak Pootrakool, a vice minister attached to the prime minister's office, said the national reform committee which is yet to be set up will consist of representatives of the private sector, government officials and academics while the national strategy committee will be chaired by the premier and consist of heads of parliament.
Included in those committees will be the heads of the National Security Council and the National Economics and Social Development Board, among others, he said.
The members of those panels will have a five-year term each, he said. Enditem
