Prime Minister: Anti-Flood Projects Will Finish on Time (Thailand)

Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has been briefed by the National Water Resources and Flood Policy Committee on the progress in various flood prevention projects while assuring that the deadlines will be met.

Prime Minister Yingluck said her recent meeting with the National Water Resources and Flood Policy Committee was for her to be reported on flood prevention progress and to discuss with relevant agencies about the details. Although the implementation of flood prevention measures in a few areas upstream is undergoing a slight delay, she insisted that the officials are accelerating the works and all of the projects will be completed on time.

The Prime Minister added that she is satisfied with the progress made so far, given the water levels in major dams have been lowered. She also expressed her belief that even though the dredging of some canals is yet to be finished, the achievement at other canals will be enough to protect the city from flooding this rainy season.
