Leading property, hotel developer urges govt to subsidise salaries


Charn Issara Group is calling on the government to co-pay salaries of people in the tourism business, especially in hotels, for at least a year to mitigate the impact of the Covid-19 outbreak.

Songkran Issara, chief executive officer of Charn Issara Development Public Company, said the governments of some European countries are subsidising wages by 80 per cent for as long as one year to encourage businesses to not lay off workers.

He said that once the private sector runs out of money, it will have to lay off staff, which means the government will still have to step in to help people.
