The government is being advised to come up with more attractive investment perks to lure foreign companies ravaged by the ongoing trade row to relocate their production bases to Thailand. "In times of trouble like this, many foreign companies are believed to be seeking greener pastures for investment," he said. More than 40% were considering moving their manufacturing facilities out of China or had already done so, AmCham China said. Mr Thosaporn said the trade war is likely to change the production base of the world for electronics products from China to Southeast Asia. The relocation would become especially visible in the latter half of this year when the trade war is expected to become heightened.
Many companies are jumping into the solar market, as they expect both on-grid and off-grid solar power to take off. For on-grid power capacity, the national power development plan (PDP) for 2018-37 has a revised target for its solar power portfolio over the next 20 years. For this segment, SPCG operates solar distribution through the wholly owned Solar Power Roof, Mr Pipat said. Gunkul Engineering launched solar panel brand GRoof last year to serve households and companies who want to install solar power generation at their own properties. Earlier this month, SCG Cement-Building Materials introduced a solar roof solution aimed at capturing new demand in the household solar scheme.

Bhumjaithai Party leader Anutin Charnvirakul is flanked by Democrat MP for Prachuap Khiri Khan Montree Panoinon (left) and Democorat secretary-general Chalermchai Sri-on during their working lunch last Tuesday. It is widely believed that Mr Anutin was referring to the PPRP when he made his remark. We remain as one," said Mr Anutin. In a separate development, the House of Representatives on Sunday voted in the PPRP MP for Chochoengsao, Suchart Tancharoen, as the first deputy House Speaker. Meanwhile, Bhumjaithai MP for Nakhon Phanom, Supachai Phosu, was chosen as second deputy House Speaker.
MPs have a chat as the House meeting experienced a delay over the election of the House Speaker on Saturday. Chai Chidchob, acting House speaker, on Saturday called for MPs to vote on whether to postpone the House speaker election after it became clear that a number of politicians, mostly from the pro-military PPRP, had not returned to the session. Meanwhile, Anucha Nakasai, PPRP-Chai Nat, reportedly admitted that he and a group of fellow MPs intentionally voted against the postponement of the vote for House speaker. The intentional "wrong voting" resulted in the Palang Pracharath camp's first defeat in the House. However, the party managed to resolve its internal conflict with the Sam Mitr faction over Mr Chuan's nomination and the vote for the House speakership later proceeded.
The US-China tech cold war is about to spread, and that will force leaders to make some difficult decisions. Alphabet Inc's Google said it would cease some ties with Huawei, including limiting the Chinese electronics company's access to its Android mobile operating system. Rather, for countries around the world, it means that every business and investment decision becomes a political one. But in addition to being capable of offering those items, China has the political and fiscal capital to do so. But if a nation agrees to install Chinese networks or infrastructure, there's an increasing chance it will be cut off from US products under the guise of American national security.
Privy Council president Prem Tinsulanonda played piano and sang during the My Season Change event, held at Thailand Cultural Centre in Bangkok in 2013 to raise funds for the Prem Tinsulanonda Foundation. Gen Prem was born on Aug 26, 1920 at tambon Bo Yang in Muang district of Songkhla province. He was the last of the eight children born to Luang Winijthantakam (Bueng Tinsulanonda) and Mrs Winijthantakam (Odd Tinsulanonda). In his childhood, Gen Prem attended Maha Vajiravudh Secondary School in Songkhla, followed by Suan Kularb Wittaya School in Bangkok, where he graduated in 1937. He was appointed a member of the Privy Council, advising the King, on Aug 23, 1988 and became Privy Council president on Sept 4, 1998.
Born in the southern province of Songkhla, Gen Prem was a professional soldier who climbed to the top of the military in 1978 when he was appointed army chief. His political career began in 1972 when he became a National Legislative Assembly member during the Thanom Kittikachorn regime. During his time, Gen Prem saw much political turbulence and was renamed prime minister in 1983 and again in 1986, following two House dissolutions. Throughout his life, Gen Prem lived by example and Gen Prayut and the regime would do well not to forget Gen Prem's wise decision to relinquish power before the tide turned against him. The regime has been accused of trying to hold on to power at any cost, which is at odds with the example set by Gen Prem.

Shipments of Thailand's automobiles and auto parts are unlikely to face penalty tariffs by the US because the export values are deemed insignificant. Shipments of Thai auto parts excluding rubber products represented a mere 0.9% or $1.3 billion of total US imports worth $139 billion in 2018. On May 23, 2018, the US Commerce Department initiated a Section 232 national security investigation into imports of automobiles and auto parts. On May 17 this year, presidential proclamations on adjusting imports of automobiles and automobile parts into the US were issued. The department cited the report, which found that American-owned automotive R&D and manufacturing were vital to national security.

Airport digital solutions are expected to reach 1.7 billion baht this year, said Jong Diloksombat, president of Samtel. The company also targets revenue of 10 billion baht again this year after achieving the threshold in 2011, based on the government's policy of digital infra-transformation, including increasing demand for airport digital solutions development. "Providing airport solutions does not generate huge revenue streams for each airport, but it will generate recurring revenue to the company in the long term," he said. Net profit leapt 150% to 150 million baht from 60.6 million for the same period.
With crow's feet and laugh lines, I'm ready to join the ageing society, which is a hot issue. At the end of February, the government involving six ministries declared it a national-agenda item, following a cabinet resolution to prepare the country for becoming an ageing society. Both public and private agencies will be on-board in raising public awareness and introducing measures to accommodate the changing demographic profile. Hiring an older workforce and extending the retirement age are suggested measures to respond to the longevity society. For example, the Japan Postal Group Union recently announced a new retirement age at 65 for postal workers in 2020.
