Following the meeting, Prime Minister's Office Spokesman, Lt Gen Sansern Kaewkamnerd, said that the administration gave its approval to decentralizing authority for the care of historical and ancient artifacts to local administrative organizations. Once in effect, the decision will see local administrative organizations tasked with cataloging and maintaining their area's cultural and artistic artifacts. The care will extend to historical sites recognized at the local level and the move will empower the organizations to register any new sites under their authority and collect entry fees as necessary. The Department of Fine Arts will still have to sign off on the details of management and maintains the ability to cancel the care of organizations when it is concerned that detriment may occur.
The Cabinet also approved an increase in remuneration to high level civil servants at the Constitution Court, Administrative Court and Justice Court as well as for independent organizations such as the Election Commission, the Auditor General's Office, the National Anti-Corruption Commission and the Office of the Ombudsman.
A retroactive 10 percent hike stretching back to December 1, 2014 to the salaries of officers of the various offices was also approved to ensure equality.
