●As superpowers eye the Mekong, Thailand should act

Recent diplomatic activity in the Mekong basin should not be underestimated by policy makers in Bangkok. The major superpowers have given their attention to the region and there could be significant development in the region's geo-politics. A US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton concluded a meeting with her counterparts from Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam last week, back-to-back with the Asean ministerial meeting in Phuket.

●Ratch lowers 7-year power generation target

Ratchaburi Electricity Generating Holding (Ratch) will lower its power-generation target over the next seven years from 8,800 megawatts to 7,800MW. The move is in response to lower electricity demand resulting from the economic slowdown. Managing director Noppol Milinthanggoon yesterday said the downward revision was also in line with the Kingdom's 15-year power-development plan, which was under amendment and tended to lower its forecast for electricity consumption.
