All police departments and police district offices, as well as local authorities, are to stop collecting fines and other fees from Lao workers who return from Thailand, she said. For several years, Lao workers in Thailand have not received protection under Thai law because they have not upgraded their status because of a lack of support in obtaining documentation by local authorities. Laos and Thailand set up assistance centres in all provinces to register Lao workers. According to the Ministry of Labour and Social Welfare, some 71,000 Lao workers in Thailand who hold purple cards have still not proven their identity. Lao workers account for about 10 percent of the 1.5 million casual labourers from Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar who are employed in Thailand.

“We will defy the order and set our stalls up at the usual time,” Yada Pornpetrumpa said. The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) banned street vendors from trading during daytime since August 1. Now, we [daytime vendors] make only Bt500 or Bt1,000 daily,” she added. However, since Khaosan Road is known the world over for its vibrant street market, the City Hall decided to draft a municipal order allowing vendors to take over the Khaosan Road footpaths from 4pm to midnight. Khaosan vendors, however, said this order would cripple vendors who make a living by selling trinkets to backpackers and Chinese tourists during the daytime.

This revival in the coal industry has also been mentioned in leading energy-monitoring reports since 2017. The International Energy Agency (IEA) reported that coal production last year had risen by 3.1 per cent, while coal consumption in the energy sector had also increased, by 1 per cent. The IEA said the growth in the coal industry could be blamed on the policy reversal in the United States and greater demand for coal in China and India. He said he believes coal will remain a major fuel for electricity generation in Southeast Asia mainly because the region is geographically close to major coal exporters such as Australia and Indonesia. IEA analysts said they expect the consumption of coal in Southeast Asia and India to rise over the next four years because this region is the last resort for the coal industry and will hold a 35-per-cent share in coal consumption by 2022.

I said I will try to stop corruption, which I’m doing. “Is he stepping down?” I think that the key to interpreting Duterte is to focus on the language-game he is playing, rather than on the literal meaning of his words. In the “I-am-your-last-card” language-game, Duterte reiterates a message he first articulated during the presidential debates. I said I will try to stop corruption, which I’m doing. Far from being an admission of failure, Duterte was actually reiterating a point he expressed on Day One of his presidency: “I know what I’m doing.
He moved his company from another co-working office to Marina One, to be close to his home in the country. A co-working office is where entrepreneurs, startups, small and medium companies can gain from each others. As many as 40 centres will be launched in China, occupying more than 4,000 square metres each. At present, the company manages 9,200 square metres of co-working space in Bangkok at AIA Sathorn Tower and Capital Tower. According to Colliers, the first co-working office in Thailand emerged in 2012, pioneered by local operator Hubba in the Ekamai area.
A recent report said Thailand could face a serious manpower crisis sooner than other countries with ageing societies. Societies are said to begin ageing when that proportion is just 7 per cent. The report does not mention a crucial factor – the way political conflict has overshadowed the issue in Thailand. Last year the Democrat Party celebrated another anniversary as Thailand’s oldest political party with pledges about the economy, income disparity and the ageing society. The ageing issue is threatening us and it will not go away.
Takorn added that the NBTC office would make reports on how to deal with the unsold spectrum lots. This round confirmed the starting bid price of Bt12.486 billion as required by the auction rules. Currently AWN holds licences to operate the 15MHz bandwidth of the 2.1GHz, 10MHz bandwidth of the 900MHz, and 15MHz bandwidth of the 1800MHz. It holds licences to operate 15MHz bandwidth of the 2.1GHz, 15MHz bandwidth of the 1800MHz, and 10MHz bandwidth of a 900MHz. The group has partnered with CAT to provide wireless service on the state agency’s 15MHz bandwidth of 850MHz.
The firm is also negotiating with an Asian developer to set up a joint venture company for the development of residential projects in Thailand next year. Currently, the company’s recurring income from its office buildings in Bangkok accounts for up to nine per cent of revenue. “SC will become a Living Solutions Provider to blend innovations with our residential projects in response to the evolving lifestyle of residents now and in the future. He added that the company continued to maintain its business goal of generating total revenue of Bt20 billion in 2020. The company is targeting total revenue of Bt17 billion at the end of this year.
In the location of Marina Square, the average rent for a serviced office is $750 per 1,000 square feet (92.90 square metres) with the minimum length of a contract being one year. For comparison, the average rent of a serviced office in the same property would cost Bt950 per square metre, subject to a yearly contract. To stay competitive, owners of office buildings need to consider adding a shared working space in their properties for individual users, she said. For retail complexes, a co-working space could boost traffic to the venues amid the challenge of e-commerce. “A co-working space should be easy to access, comes with a good infrastructure, an appealing design and provides both public and private areas,” he said.
Pichet regards “Black and White” as the second milestone in his company’s history. The Thailand premiere at Sodsai Pantoomkomol Centre for Dramatic Arts two years later was also met with critical acclaim. A few months later, the work was championed with IATC Thailand award for the year’s best movement-based performance. That’s partly because he’d rather the audience focused on the company and their performance than him, an international superstar of contemporary dance. “Black and White” is on Friday and Saturday at 7.30pm and on Sunday 2pm.
When all is said and done, will Imran Khan have been the friend of the people or the prisoner of his circumstances? Those who have the most faith in Imran Khan see him as an answer to a nation’s prayer. They tirelessly assure Imran Khan of their cooperation and loyalty, and keep their options open. She describes the recent elections as “the military re-arranging pool-side chairs” for Imran Khan to “lubricate the military agenda”. Given the magnitude of his mission, Imran Khan must be a 24/7 force multiplier.
Residents of Ban Moung Khammai Moo 11 and Moo 13, Ban Rong Kor Moo 4 and Ban Santhat Moo 9 were sent scrambling as the tide submerged roads as well. Chiang Rai Governor Prajon Prajsakul dispatched officials to help people evacuate their homes and to distribute drinking water and food. In Phetchaburi, the Kaeng Krachan Dam was holding nearly 767 million cubic metres of water as of 6am yesterday, representing 108 per cent of its capacity. With that amount to be boosted to 53 million cubic metres from August 23-27, residents were told to move belongings to higher grounds. Residents along both sides of the Moei River in Tak’s Mae Sot district, meanwhile, were warned of possible flash floods.
But, to be fair, they’ve only had about 19 months in which to do so. Quite apart from Russia’s leader batting eyelids at Turkey’s strongman and the warming bromance that is currently underway, we have to consider the security context in which this situation finds itself. An alliance constructed to counter the perceived threat of the erstwhile Warsaw Pact, Nato now has to contemplate what is emerging from its successor. The costs of losing that vital component to an essential militarily constituent part would be incalculable. Turkey is Melos, by the way, whether Erdogan accepts that or not.
To begin with, don’t drag the US Embassy into this – they have nothing to do with this cartoon issue. Is this because it is the same God that the Christians and Jews and Nigel Pike are worshipping? Thirdly, the killings and violence listed by Nigel are terrorist attacks. But we also know there are violence and killings in Palestine too. Isn’t this God’s word: “But I say unto you, that ye resist not evil, but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.”Yingwai Suchaovanich
“ When taking into account the economics principle and international standard, Thai judges are over paid,” he said. Judges in the UK and US also deal with more legal cases than Thai judges. Thus it is not reasonable that a Thai judge income is three times of the national GDP per capita. It should be capped at about 1.7 times of GDP per capita as in the US and UK, said Nonarit. Thai court fee should be raised to between 3 to 5 per cent of the amount in dispute in order to cover the cost of legal service, he said.
