Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has written another poem to urge the Thai people, particularly those in the agricultural sector, to use the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej's initiatives under his sufficiency economy philosophy in their daily life, government spokesman Sansern Kaewkamnerd said on Saturday (July 22).
Lt Gen Sansern said that in his poem, written on July 19, Gen Prayut advised farmers to study about marketing, grow plants which are suitable to geographical terrains and yield produce that meets the market's demands.
In the poem, entitled Lak Kid Pracharat (Principle of people-state partnership), the prime minister also asks farmers not to encroach on national forests because doing so will affect their life and livelihood in the long run.
He also promises to lead the country to the betterment, regardless of obstacles.
Lt Gen Sansern asked the people and students to share the prime minister's poem in the social media.
This is not the first time Gen Prayut communicate through poems. He recently wrote poems to explain the government's Thailand 4.0 policy, to give the Cabinet members moral support, and to encourage Thai people to appreciate their motherland.
