Yingluck Shinawatra and other officials.

Yingluck emphasised that there must be restrictions on burning and surveillance in vulnerable areas. Every sector must work together to help solve this problem, she said. The present parties discussed measures that might be taken to prevent and tackle the annual haze in Northern areas. There was an emphasis on the idea that each province experiencing wildfire smoke problems needs to better manage fires, and be more proactive with maintenance.

The group ordered a watch on areas with a fire risk during the upcoming haze. The governors recommended the participation of all sectors involved in surveillance of forests to be extra aware of potential fires, and catch them before they spread. Fuel management is also needed in order to achieve the goal of controlling forest fires and declining the haze, which has become a yearly crisis for Northern Thailand.

This meeting has been held several times over the last few years.
