Srettha to talk about haze problems with Hun Manet

Thai Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin said today that he will call his Cambodian counterpart, Hun Manet, to discuss the ongoing haze problem

Srettha, who is visiting the northern province of Chiang Mai, said he expected to talk to Hun Manet this afternoon, after being briefed by Pakorn Apaphant, the director of the Geo-Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency (GISTDA).

Pakorn explained to Srettha about Thai and Cambodian cooperation in the prevention of burning, which increases haze and dust levels. Satellite imagery clearly shows that the hotspots are more prevalent in Thailand’s neighbouring countries, although Pakorn did not identify them by name.
