“Besides, the ministry will check details of consumer spending in the first and second quarters after a series of economic stimulus schemes were launched, while the government will evaluate the performance of each scheme on how much it has helped boost the economy,” he explained.

Meanwhile, Fiscal Policy Office director-general Kulaya Tantitemit said the third phase of Let’s Go Halves is expected to be launched after the “Rao Chana” (We Win) and “Mor33 Rao Rak Kan” (Section33 We Love Each Other) schemes end in May.
