Thailland – No more floods in next 5 years – Virabongsa

Via: The Nation

“I took this job as a Thai who wants to help the homeland country. My job is to assure local and foreign investors on the reconstruction of the country for higher competitiveness. Within a year from now, the confidence will be restored and in five years, there would be no more disaster,” he told reporters after the appointment.

Virabongsa, former deputy prime minister, noted that the disaster is more serious than in 1942 and too serious for any government to handle, given that flood-hit areas contribute one third of the economy and house manufacturing centres.

personal thought:

With climate change, and the continuing sinking of Bangkok: I think it’s conceivable 2012, 2013, . . ., might be even more disasterous.

I hope that’s not the case, but . . .
