PATTAYA — Deputy Prime Minister Somkid Jatusripitak has admitted that curing Thailand’s economic “polio” will be an uphill task. Mr Somkid likened the economy to a patient with two legs, one being exports and investment and the other consumption. The disease has eroded exports and investment and at the same time curbed spending in rural areas. He said his duty was to concentrate on curing the disease so that the two legs could balance, but admitted that time was not on his side.

The really skilled labor-force has been very important in all kinds of (local) business like building etc.; it isn’t there!!!
