officials review water management solutions for Chiang Mai.
Chiang Mai Governor Suriya Prasatbuntitya and government officials met with
Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha at the mobile Cabinet meeting held at the
Chiang Mai International Convention and Exhibition Center (CMICE) on June 30
to propose necessary and needed infrastructure projects for consideration.
Forty-six projects were prosed including waste management, water management,
mass transit, road improvements, a second airport, a new reservoir, and
rehabilitation of the Mae Kha Canal.
Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha talked about the ongoing water issues that
Chiang Mai and Thailand face and expressed his opinion that finding
solutions to water shortages and drought required better management from the
agriculture and consumer sectors. He noted that the agricultural sector will
need to change its growing and production practices and change to crops that
use less water.
The Damrongdhama Center also established a temporary complaint center for
members of the public at CMICE and twenty complaints were filed with the
Center. These will be sent on to the Prime Minister for review.
Governor Suriya Prasatbuntitya told the Chiang Mai Mail that the proposals
are being passed on to the relevant Ministries and expressed optimism that
they would be approved for Chiang Mai.
