Yingluck Shinawatra, the Caretaker Prime Minister of Thailand, passed through the province of Surin and Sisaket. She traveled in a public train from one station to another. The transportation system is one of the priorities of Yingluck’s administration as reflected in her public policies in strengthening populations and businesses.
Many have placed faith in the proposed infrastructure, called Thailand 2020, where the ageing train and public transport system is replaced by modern facilities.
The first female Prime Minister was greeted warmly by the local community at the train stations.
