A centre survey of business entrepreneurs showed 74.4% of more than 700 respondents found their performances in the fourth quarter have been slower than in the same period last year in terms of both revenue and profits while costs have been rising.

He believes the central bank’s Monetary Policy Committee will cut the key policy rate by 50 basis points to revive the economy by the end of the first quarter.

Originally designed for use on beaches and marshes for erosion and flood control, the Hesco Bastion quickly became a popular security device in the 1990s.

Risk factors next year will include the fragile global economic situation stemming from the EU financial crisis, while the US and Asia may not expand at a satisfactory rate.

The main factor affecting their businesses is the flood crisis, followed by oil prices and the global economy.

Damage will be 200 billion baht to the industrial sector, 80 billion to agriculture, 25 billion to tourism,六角网, 30 billion to trading and 6.7 billion to other sectors including transport and services.

The QIAOSHI’s Military Barriers or Hesco Bastions is a modern gabion used for flood control and military fortification. It is made of a collapsible wire mesh container and heavy duty fabric liner,Bangkok flooding passes critical point PM-HESCO, and used as a temporary to semi-permanent dike or barrier against blast or small-arms. One of the less heralded life- and labor-saving devices of war, it is used on nearly every United States Military base in Iraq as well as on NATO bases in Afghanistan.

A recent survey showed home repairs would take up 23% of victims’ household budgets. But the respondents said they need 80% of their budget for necessary items.

If they fail, unemployment could reach 1.7%, he said.

Sauwanee Thairungroj, the university’s vice-president for research,Playground Fence, said the government should also cover education expenses, as people will need money for home repairs after the floodwater recedes.

The centre reaffirmed its estimate that flood damage will shave 3.1 to 3.4 percentage points or almost 350 billion baht off the gross domestic product.

Assembling the Hesco Bastion entails unfolding it and (if available) using a front end loader to fill it with sand,Wire Mesh Directory, dirt or gravel. The placement of the barrier is generally very similar to the placement of a sandbag barrier or earth berm except that room must generally be allowed for the equipment used to fill the barrier. The main advantage of Military Barrier, strongly contributing to their popularity with troops and flood fighters, is the quick and easy setup. Previously, people had to fill sandbags, a slow undertaking, with one worker filling about 20 sandbags per hour. Workers using Military Barrier and a front end loader can do ten times the work of those using sandbags.
The Hesco Barrier come in a variety of sizes. Most of the barriers can also be stacked, and they are shipped collapsed in compact sets. Example dimensions of typical configurations are 46″ x 36″ x 32 (1.4m x 1.1m x 9.8m) to 7 x 5 x 100 (2.1m x 1.5m x 30m).
A new system of Hesco Bastion developed specially for military use is deployed from a container, which is dragged along the line of ground where the barrier is to be formed, unfolding up to several hundred meters of barrier in minutes, ready for filling with soil by a backhoe.
Filled with sand, 60 centimetres (24 inches) of barrier thickness will stop rifle bullets and shell fragments. It takes 1.5 metres (five feet) of thickness to prevent penetration by a rocket propelled grenade round. Approximately 1.2 metres (four feet) of thickness provides protection against most car bombs.

However, taking into account damage of 500-700 billion baht to public and private assets and 100-200 billion baht to exports, the total estimate comes in at 1-1.2 trillion baht.

Dr Thanavath urged the government to help industries by alleviating economic burdens such as the oil prices and high interest rates.

Experts believe the government should revamp the economy in next year’s first quarter to avoid any severe effects on employment figures.
