On his first day in office, newly appointed Transport Minister Jarupong Ruangsuwan says his ministry's priority is to repair flooded roads and infrastructure, while promising to work in a transparent manner.

The transport minister as well as his deputy Chadchart Sittiphan paid respect to a Buddha image and the spirit house at the ministry for good fortune. Mr Jarupong also officially accepted the position from Air Chief Marshal Sukampol Suwannathat, former Transport Minister who is now Defense Minister.

Mr Jarupong has promised to be honest and adhere to righteousness. He says the urgent issues for his ministry are repairing infrastructure damaged by the flood, increase Thai logistics potentials, speeding up electric train railways, and clarify the truth on former Permanent Secretary for Transport Supoj Saplom's corruption case.
