Prommin Lertsuridej, secretary-general to the PM, said the 10,000-baht digital money scheme is an economic necessity. The digital wallet scheme is intended to stimulate the economy. "These are the justification for the economic stimulus,'' he said, referring to the digital wallet plan. Dr Prommin said the handout will benefit low-income earners as their spending will help spur economic activity and micro-investment. The digital wallet scheme is intended to increase spending during the six-month period after its launch in May, three months later than originally planned.
