Jobs at risk at Wang Nam Khieo tourist attractions

 Employment officials will help about 100 workers find new jobs after Flora Park and Faprathan Farm were found to have operated illegally on public land in Wang Nam Khieo district.

The Agricultural Land Reform Office (Alro) earlier found that the 103-rai privately owned Flora Park and 279-rai Faprathan Farm used public farmland under the office's supervision.

Alro allows only real farmers to cultivate on its land and will reclaim the plots of both tourist destinations.

As about 100 people were working at the sites, employment officials would find new jobs for them if both places were shut down, Preecha Intarachatorn, employment chief of Nakhon Ratchasima, said on Friday.

New jobs would be in Wang Nam Khieo, Pak Chong and nearby districts because the workers were local people, he said. He believes that local hotels in Wang Nam Khieo and Pak Chong would need new workers during the high season.

Faprathan Farm had orchards and organic vegetable gardens. Flora Park featured temperate flower plantations, restaurants and cafes.

The agriculture and cooperative minister earlier ordered officials to check 241,018 rai of public farmland under the Alro's jurisdiction in Wang Nam Khieo, which accounts for 34% of the district.
Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.

The Agricultural Land Reform Office (Alro) is speeding up its attempts to file a criminal suit seeking to evict current business operators found unlawfully occupying and making use of two major plots of land designated for poor farmers in Nakhon Ratchasima, according to an Alro source.


Flora Park on Monday continued normally operating its business and a large number of visitors were seen visiting the park throughout the day, despite a large poster at the entrance to the park that says owned by Alro and nobody is permitted to occupy it. The poster was installed by Alro and taken down, then reposted after the local Alro office lodged a complaint with police over the missing poster, said an informed source.
