As many as 15 million people may be eligible to receive state welfare support, as the Finance Ministry on Thursday kicked off a new round of state welfare registration for 2017. 

Eleven state agencies on Thursday signed a memorandum of understanding to collaborate on welfare registration and the screening of eligible persons.

“We estimate as many as 15 million people this year will enroll to get welfare due to the wider coverage of registration channels,” said Somchai Sujjapongse, permanent secretary for the Finance Ministry.
