"Around late February, there will be a meeting of Asean countries' executives to designate the roadmap for tackling the haze problem at the regional level," Wichan Simachaya, director-general of the PCD, said last week.

"Thailand also has a plan to sponsor haze control efforts in neighbouring countries.

"For example, we're supporting the installation of air pollution measurement equipment in Laos this year and we have a plan to do the same thing in Myanmar and Cambodia, which still lack proper devices to warn their citizens," he said.
