Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha is ready to meet people face to face at Government House and hear their economic problems so as to quickly address them.

They can raise issues with him from the cost of living to the impact of Covid-19, except political issues.

PM's adviser Peerapan Saleerattavipaksaid said on Thursday that the premier has assigned him and Minister of Digital Economy and Society Puttipng Punnakanta to find ways for people to directly make complaints about their economic problems at Government House.

The premier believes that people want to talk face to face with the country's leader.

Peerapan said the first session for the people to tell their problems to the premier will begin on Thursday. But it will be finalised later if this forum will be held every Thursday.

When asked if the premier will allow protesting students to meet him too to voice their political views, Peerapan said it is a different matter as this forum will focus only on economic issues.

He added that related government committees are already seeking ways to open a forum for these students to express their views to them.
