Arkhom Termpittayapaisith was officially appointed Thailand’s new finance minister on Monday, tasked with rescuing the economy from an unprecedented downswing under the impact of Covid-19.

The appointment was announced in the Royal Gazette on Monday.

Arkom succeeds Predee Daochai, who abruptly quit the post on September 2 after less than a month in office.

Arkom was previously transport minister under the post-coup Prayut Chan-o-cha government.

Before that, he was secretary-general of the National Economic and Social Development Board, a state think-tank which is now known as the National Economic and Social Development Council.
