Sarn Jai Thai to the South

From Komchadluek, October 15, 2010
The caption reads: Sarn Jai Thai - Gen Prem Tinasulanonda, statesman and Privy Council President, presides over the "Sarn Jai Thai to the South" project with army commanders at the Army club, Vibhavadi Rangsit Road on October 14.

[This refers to a project to promote reconciliation in the Southern border provinces. The project is sponsored by the Thai Chamber of commerce, the Federation of Thai Industries, and the Bank of Thailand Association with Prem leading the initiative. Prem was instrumental in the 1980s and 1990s for putting into place programs that basically ended the long running separatist movements in the Deep South. These movements were reignited once Thai Rak Thai came to power and replaced the military governance of the provinces with police control.]
