Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has written that he does not give up easily and once he sets his mind to any mission, he will achieve it - no matter how hard the work is.
Prayut wrote in an article entitled "From the heart of the PM" in the third issue of the government's newsletter.
When his weekly TV programme "Return Happiness to the People" marked its first anniversary, the PM wrote that his intention in making the programme was to communicate with the public in order to achieve the government's goals.
He said he welcomed all comments and criticism to improve the show. "Many complain that the PM talks too much - no jokes or no fun anymore. Some want me to be interviewed by TV hosts. Some rather want to see a soap drama (instead of his report)," he said.
But to improve the programme, he said he would get his deputies and ministers talk instead. He urged people to focus on content important to the country and the future of Thai children, rather than entertainment.
"I will continue my simple and clear working style. I will not give up easily. Once I set my goals, I will achieve them no matter how hard and how tired I am. I hope that one day my critics will understand me more,'' he wrote.
