Thailand’s Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) has approved a new 45 billion baht stimulus package, for distribution to 15 million Thai adults to spend with independent vendors, small retailers, convenience stores and shopping malls.
The 15 million people will each receive 3,000 baht, to be spent within three months to buy food or other necessities from outlets which have registered to join the programme.
The customers will, however, pay half the price of the products or services out of their own pockets, with the balance being met by the state. Spending will be capped at between 100-250 baht per head per day.
Mr. Danucha Pichayanant, Deputy Secretary-General of the National Economic and Social Development Board, said today
