BANGKOK, Oct 6 (Reuters) - Thailand’s cabinet on Tuesday approved a 10.6 billion baht ($339 million) project to create jobs to support its rural economy and reduce poverty, a government spokesman said.
That government plans to hire at least 60,000 students and community members for government development programmes, government spokesman Anucha Burapachaisri told a briefing.
That will be financed by some of the government’s 1 trillion baht borrowing for reviving an economy hit badly by the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic. ($1 = 31.23 baht) (Reporting by Satawasin Staporncharnchai; Writing by Orathai Sriring; Editing by Martin Petty)
