Govt to help broke first-car buyers

- +

The Finance Ministry will be "accommodating" towards first-time car buyers who cannot make payments on cars bought through the government's populist policy, according to deputy minister Tanusak Lek-uthai. 

"I will consult with the Comptroller-General's Office to see if we can hold talks with the auto leasing companies about whether some leeway can be given [if buyers cannot meet payments]," he said. 

"I don't want to see the government having to sue people. I'm going to set as a policy that we have to help the people."
