Government pledges to continue tackling illegal fishing and human trafficking

The government is determined to continue its efforts to settle Thailand’s problems with illegal fishing and human trafficking. Deputy Prime Minister Gen. Prawit Wongsuwon on Wednesday chaired a meeting of the committee tasked to manage the reform of public and government administration. The meeting heard an update on progress in the operations to tackle illegal fishing activities and human trafficking, which have been focused on hearing people’s problems through the National Fisheries Association of Thailand. Regarding efforts to solve human trafficking problems, the meeting heard the order to all involved to keep implementing all measures and to pay attention to details in the latest Trafficking in Persons Report and come up with effective action plans, while putting an emphasis on assistance and law enforcement as well as public education. In addition, the meeting resolved to set up a new committee responsible for integrated management of electronic waste and plastic waste brought in from overseas — a decision that was made in accordance with the policy of Prime Minister Gen. Prayut Chan-o-cha to solve the problem of toxic waste. Gen. Prawit also urged the Royal Thai Police and the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration to step up efforts to solve traffic congestion in the city, particularly in areas where electric train line construction is underway while suggesting the setting up of a central committee to speedily solve problems faced by retailers at the Chatuchak weekend market.
