BANGKOK, Nov 10 (TNA) – The second round of registration for the co-payment scheme is set to start tomorrow after some registrants failed to use the subsidy within the stipulated period of 14 days.
The Fiscal Policy Office’s deputy spokesman, Pornchai Theerawet said individuals can register to join the scheme from 6 am to 11 pm through its website until the rights are full for about 2.3 million participants.

As of Nov 9, over 557,000 business owners had registered under the scheme, which had benefited more than 7.3 million consumers and accumulated spending was valued at 10 billion baht.
Most accumulated spending was recorded in Bangkok, followed by Songkhla, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Surat Thani and Chiang Mai. (TNA)
