Quotes

"Approaching the private sector to invest jointly [in some infrastructure projects] could halve the construction period to five years from 10 years, and this could accelerate the speed of economic momentum" he told a forum at the Post Today Investment Expo 2014 yesterday
"When Jackie Chan stands up to speak against the ivory trade], a kid might be watching and he might tell his dad to not go outout to buy that ivory envelope opener, but to buy a gold one instead. It takes a whole movement all around us to fix the problem. Everyone’s responsible; everyone's to blame."
This afternoon Ms Yupin could not immediately be reached by The Phuket News , but Mr Pichet told us,  "I missed them and I am so glad they are coming back to see me. I really appreciate it. Ten years ago they were just children. I have no idea what they will be like now. But please tell them that Thailand welcomes them back."
"Politicians would be only management people who carry out rural people's consensus" he added
