  1. Impressive. Thailand – take note of what I imagine is still a socialist government and country can achieve. Could it be due to that there is little or no corruption, due to fear of being ”disappeared”. ?

    • Corruption is rife in Vietnam. Same people get paid for the past decades.

      But the repercussions when there is a regime trend are very high. But when the president and deputy pm of the com party were removed, it was the first time they weren’t hanged/jailed/heads chopped off, since the Vietnam War.
