Vision statement of Talat Chaiya municipality

Sign with the vision statement of Talat Chaiya municipality
Almost every government agency has a vision statement (วิสัยทัศน์), to sum up how they intend to work for their subjects or clients. I have shown the one the Department of Provincial Administration placed on their website earlier, another one I spotted when I went to the municipal office of Talat Chaiya subdistrict municipality (เทศบาลตำบลตลาดไชยา), a sign hanging directly next to the entrance.

Strangely the much longer statements on their website does not include the one printed on that sign. The vision statements listing aims should not be confused with the slogans (คำขวัญ), which the provinces and most districts have. These slogan list geographical or cultural highlights of the area. I will devote a future posting to these slogans.

The vision statement of Talat Chaiya municipality reads as follows:

เทศบาลตำบลตลาดไชยา เป็นเมืองน่าอยู่

Talat Chaiya municipality is a lively town


aim to be central town of northern Surat Thani


Population have high quality of living


community have safety in life and possession
