About 23 billion baht will be allocated to rehabilitation programs for provinces affected by the current flooding, Deputy Government Spokesperson Rachada Dhnadirek said today (Tuesday).

She said that Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has instructed agencies responsible for rehabilitation to be prepared to conduct field inspections of areas affected by flooding, to assess damage caused to property, and then to then request appropriate funding.

Regarding damaged farmland, she said that the Ministry of Agriculture and Agricultural Cooperatives is directly responsible for the rehabilitation program, whereas repairs to damaged roads and other infrastructure are to be undertaken by the appropriate agencies, such as the Department of Rural Roads and the Highways Department.

She also said that the government is ready to provide additional help if needed, to make sure that everyone affected by flooding is equally well looked after.
