The cybersecurity bill will go into effect by June. Paiboon Amonpinyokeat, an adviser to the subcommittee overseeing the bill, said the law covers only incidents affecting critical information infrastructure such as state utilities. Under the law, the National Cybersecurity Commission (NCSC) will be set up, chaired by the prime minister. The latter will oversee national cybersecurity, led by the DE minister working with the supreme commander. Mr Paiboon said any person causing a data leak from critical information infrastructure can be sentenced to jail for 3-7 years.

Pattaya: South Korea's Jenny Shin snatched a one-shot lead with a last-hole birdie during an exciting second round of the Honda LPGA Thailand yesterday. "I wasn't hydrated enough this morning and I could feel it by late afternoon," world No.67 Shin said. World No.18 Moriya said she had been making adjustments to her swing, but was happy with her play in general. But the two-time major champion, who also won the 2016 Women's British Open, has had a slow start to this season. I've found I can be more aggressive with the driving game and things are starting to pay off," she said.

While all three clubs have a tale to tell, Newport's saga of survival against the odds is worth closer inspection. They managed to get a place in the Hellenic League, five divisions below the Football League and slowly worked their way up. Newport also triumphed in the Welsh Cup which entitled them to play in the European Cup Winners' Cup. These days the Welsh clubs in the English leagues are more concerned about survival than any European exploits. Let's hope they hang in there as these teams add colour, spice and diversity to the Football League.
But Trump again said he was considering pushing back the deadline for raising tariffs on more than $200 billion in Chinese exports. Details remained scant about any concrete progress in the seven-month-old trade war, which has rattled global markets and prompted stark warnings about the risks to the world economy. "I think there is a very, very good chance that a deal can be made," Trump told reporters at the White House on a second day of trade negotiations with Chinese officials. And Trump said an agreement on currency manipulation will be included in the trade pact. "From China, we believe that it is very likely that it will happen," Chinese trade envoy Liu He said, speaking through an interpreter.

Regional development, multi-level governance and water security are the keys to Thailand becoming a high-income economy, says the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development. Local authorities should have at least one important tax base. Local authorities should be allowed to finance infrastructure, as well as to plan and implement strategy development. Finally, Thailand should improve water management to focus on the security of natural resources from existing management based on natural disasters, especially flooding. In addition, better governance and coordination between local and national authorities on water management is crucial.

Let's briefly consider local geopolitics and the Thai military. Now to be frank, the Thai military is not a deterrent and is not capable of engaging in war successfully. As a result of the defence spending cut, there was not enough money for military training, fuel and maintenance of military equipment, he said. Why does the Royal Thai Army actually need so many high-salaried generals?

The National Council for Peace and Order's (NCPO) legal arm, the Judge Advocate General (JAG) Office, has proved to be both powerful and abusive. Its numerous legal actions against civilians, mainly activists and politicians, have barely benefited the public but instead served the regime's interests. This legal arm of the NCPO has done more harm than good to the country as embarks on the path back to democracy. The NCPO's legal team claims they violated the regime's order prohibiting political gatherings of five people or more. The fact the police proceeded so quickly with these cases hints at the influence the NCPO's legal arm wields.
Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has defended the role of the appointed 250 senators who will join MPs in voting for a prime minister. Responding to criticism that the appointed 250 senators would serve as his support base, Gen Prayut said: "Although the senators will be appointed by me, will you look down on all 250 of them?" Under the constitution, there are 500 elected MPs and 250 appointed senators. In light of this, the 250 appointed senators will play a crucial role in keeping Gen Prayut in power after the poll. Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva told the Bangkok Post that at this stage there was no knowing who the 250 senators would vote for as the next prime minister.
The Commerce Ministry reported yesterday that Thailand's outbound shipments contracted 5.7% year-on-year last month to US$18.9 billion. Exports in baht terms fell by 5.7% year-on-year to 616.104 billion baht.

Moreover, the possibility that the US may extend its initial tariff deadline will send a positive signal to the market and improve global trade sentiment."
Mexico City: Kiradech Aphibarnrat produced his best opening round of the year on the PGA Tour on Thursday, carding a three-under 68 for a share of seventh position at the US$10 million World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship. After missing the cut in three of his last four tournaments, Kiradech enjoyed a solid start with birdies on one, two, six and 11. He endured two three-putt bogeys on 12 and 13 but regained his composure by rolling in a 15-footer on 17 to end the round in the top-10 of the leaderboard. I hit it quite nicely early on to make those birdies and kept the ball pretty much in play for most of the round. Made some mistakes to bogey 12 and 13 but I managed to finish strongly by holing a long putt on 17.
