PM Addresses Chiang Mai Air Pollution Crisis

In Chiang Mai, Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin has recently weighed in on the persistent air pollution crisis gripping the province. Despite the city’s continued global ranking for high PM2.5 levels, the Prime Minister has noted a notable decrease by one-third compared to previous years. This development comes amidst growing concerns over the health and environmental impacts of air pollution in the region.

Addressing the pressing issue during his visit on March 16, Prime Minister Srettha underscored the critical nature of the next 45 days, emphasizing the need for heightened vigilance and the implementation of stringent measures to address the problem effectively. He particularly stressed the importance of engaging in earnest discussions with neighboring countries to tackle cross-border haze, which significantly contributes to the pollution predicament.

During his visit to Chiang Mai, Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin observed firsthand the concerted efforts aimed at preventing and resolving issues related to wildfires, haze, and PM2.5 pollution. His inspection took place at the meeting room of the Mae Faek – Mae Ngud Somboon Chon water distribution and maintenance project in Mae Taeng district, where discussions on strategies to combat air pollution were likely central.

The Prime Minister’s engagement reflects the government’s recognition of the gravity of the situation and its commitment to addressing the multifaceted challenges posed by air pollution in Chiang Mai. With the implementation of stringent measures and collaborative efforts both domestically and internationally, there is hope for tangible progress in mitigating the adverse effects of air pollution on public health and the environment.
