THE government is to consider within this week how to ease restrictions and allow entertainers and entertainment venues to resume operation, Thai PBS said.
Government spokesman Lt-Gen Sansern Kaewkamnerd said on Monday that although the country is observing mourning for the passing away of His Majesty the late King, Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha is concerned about the impact of the mourning on entertainers and entertainment venues.
The prime minister had assigned one of his deputies, General Thanasak Patimaprakorn, to discuss with the authorities concerned, entertainers, operators of entertainment places and members of the public how to ease the impact, he added.
As for the operation of TV stations, Lt-Gen Sansern said he expected TV stations, including cable TV, would be able to resume airing their programs as normal after the passing of the first 30 days of mourning.
