Or… “what goes down, must go up”.

“If workplaces reopen, there will be employment and salaries… If factories reopen and employ people, rehabilitation will start.”

Responding to reporters yesterday, the Thai PM Prayut Chan-o-cha expressed confidence the economy will improve once businesses reopen and people are employed again, and when tourism resumes, with measures in place to give visitors confidence in their safety.

He was replying to questions about the next step in relaxing the nationwide state of emergency imposed to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

“Tourism, tourist destinations and hotels will be improved so that tourists will have confidence and return to Thailand. We will take special care of public health.”

The PM says that during relaxation of control measures, resumption of activities will be gradual. Otherwise, things could again get out of control.

“The government will do its best to take care of everyone, as far as it can, with existing laws and budgets and it will use money efficiently. Please have confidence and listen to the government.”

He asked people to follow control measures such as social distancing and wearing masks, because a new wave of contagion would result in greater troubles.

“Please be patient and helpful. The government is taking care of affected businesses and people. We do not know how long the Covid pandemic will last. The key is to make our country a safe place as soon as possible.”
