The second phases of two economic stimulus projects – “‘Let Go Halves” and the state welfare card shopping subsidy – were approved by the Centre for Economic Situation Administration (CESA) on Wednesday and will be put to the Cabinet next week.

Under phase 2 of Let's Go Halves (Kon La Khreung), the number of participants eligible for the daily Bt150 shopping subsidy will be increased from 10 million to 15 million. The total subsidy limit per person will also rise from Bt3,000 to Bt3,500. The second phase will run from January 1 to March 31.

Those who participated in Shop Dee Mee Kuen (Shop and Payback) and holders of state welfare cards are not eligible for Kon La Khreung.

The Finance Ministry will reveal the registration day soon.

Under the second scheme, holders of the state welfare card will receive an additional Bt500 per person per month for purchases made at participating shops. The second phase will run for three months from January to March 2021.
