    It's time to lay the Kaeng Sua Ten Dam project to rest

    News, Published on 14/02/2013

    » Last Saturday Deputy Prime Minister Plodprasop Suraswadi, who is chairman of the government's Water Management and Flood Prevention Commission, proposed to implement the Mae Wong Dam and resurrect the Kaeng Sua Ten Dam as part of the huge flood-prevention package now being formulated. Neither of these dams, if implemented, would offer enough flood prevention to offset the damage caused to forests and wildlife.

    Veera Prateepchaikul, Published on 11/10/2013

    » Thaksin Shinawatra's opponents may be angry with the Office of the Attoney General (OAG) and its former chief, Chulasingh Vasantasingh, for letting him off the hook on charges of terrorism, but the decision was not surprising given the current political climate.

    Fear of social change a step back

    News, Kong Rithdee, Published on 09/08/2014

    » Those who live permanently in the past can't see the inevitability of the present. Those who worship the stegosaurus would do something so comical, so anachronistic as banning a computer game that most people have never heard of, prompting nearly everyone to hear about it and wanting to play it — just for kicks, just for a slap to the face, just to prove that techno-terrorism will leave the dinosaurs behind. In the world of bandwidth, in a time when information always slips through the iron fist like water or like pus, in short, in the downloadable, Wiki-leakable 21st century — banning data is the practice of ants trapped in prehistoric amber.

    Liberalise lease laws

    News, Postbag, Published on 29/01/2016

    » An argument often heard in Thailand is that to extend leases or grant ownership rights to foreigners would betray sensitivity to the history of colonisation in Southeast Asia. But Thailand has not been subject to colonisation and is seldom seen to be overly sensitive to its neighbours' problems or transgressions, unless they directly impact the kingdom.

    Why did a Malaysian buy 'The Phnom Penh Post'?

    News, Sek Sophal, Published on 19/05/2018

    » After the closure of the Cambodia Daily in September last year, The Phnom Penh Post practically became the last man standing in terms of independent news content in Cambodia. The sale of the Post to Sivakumar Ganapathy, a Malaysian investor, sparked in Cambodian society a mixture of sad, worried, hopeless, and frustrated sentiment, deeply affecting not only the paper's staff but also other journalists, civil society organisations and the public.

    Reckless development sows seeds of disaster

    News, Paritta Wangkiat, Published on 09/08/2018

    » As monsoon rains have struck the Mekong region recently, some countries have been hit hard by flooding. These disasters reflect the fact that the region's development projects have not fully recognised climate change impacts and so lack plans to deal with them.

    False report undermines Mekong cooperation

    News, Published on 12/07/2019

    » The recent media report on the Mekong River which contained false accusations against China ignores the joint efforts made by China, Thailand and other relevant parties to promote cooperation on Mekong water resources for the benefit of the people in the region. These accusations mislead the readers and undermine the good atmosphere of sub-regional cooperation.
