Sustainability in Thailand ranks first in an ASEAN survey


For the fourth year in a row, Thailand’s progress toward attaining the 17 sustainable development objectives has put it at the top of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) rankings (SDGs).

Thipanan Sirichana, deputy government spokesperson, made this claim in reference to the current sustainable development report, saying that Thailand’s high ranking represents the goals of the government and Prime Minister Gen. Prayut Chan-o-cha.

The spokesman continued by saying the survey is a crucial sign that the government is heading in the right direction.

The country of Thailand has shown the most success in reducing poverty and is well on its way to achieving four of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): improving access to excellent education; improving water and sanitation; improving industrial innovation and infrastructure; and reducing waste

Health and well-being, sex equality, access to inexpensive and sustainable energy, employment, economic growth, and inequality are all on the rise in the kingdom.

Thailand came in at number 44 worldwide, much below the number one spot held by Finland (86.51%).
