The Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has sent a letter to the top 20 richest in the nation to help out during the Covid-19 outbreak. The pandemic has taken away lives, jobs, and is affecting the economy on an international level while the medical field is working non-stop to find a cure and methods of protection against the virus. The PM has sent a letter to the top 20 richest in the country, though the government has not stated specifically who these people are.
The PM announced earlier on Friday about the letters, suggesting that these people can help propose opinions and ideas on how to deal with the virus and the financial side of things. Shortly after the announcement, Thai netizens have asked whether Thaksin Shinawatra who is the former PM of Thailand will be receiving a letter, as he is currently the 16th richest man in Thailand according to Forbes.com.
This translation is not an official translation of the letter and is only intended to summarize the current events. The PM stated in the letter, Thailand is facing Covid-19, a terrible crisis that the country and the world are facing. It is destroying lives, society, and the economy like never before. This is when the people and Thailand need the most help from all sectors, especially those with knowledge and strong abilities. This is why I have contacted you, as an elder in the society.
I am deeply thankful that many of you have already helped the people in many ways, but I need more help using your abilities. This is to help Thai’s that are suffering badly right now, with speed and more efficiency. I ask for a document to propose ideas in which you are ready to do for our Thai brothers and sisters. I am not asking for a donation, instead of projects that will go out and help the people. To also include any requests for the government that will help carry out the projects. Please send the documents to me within next week, I highly appreciate your response. Thank you, Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha.
