BANGKOK, Jan. 26 (Xinhua) -- Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on Saturday revealed the government's four-point national strategy and infrastructure investment plan to move the country forward for sustainable growth, the Thai News Agency reported.

The PM, on her weekly TV program "Yingluck Government Meets the People," said that the government has plans to spend about 67 billion U.S. dollars to implement a four-point national strategy, while adhering to fiscal discipline and transparency to prevent potential corruption.

Yingluck said she believed that the national strategy would enhance the country's effectiveness and draw more foreign investment.

The premier has clarified that in the first strategy, the government will focus on capacity-building to enhance Thailand's competitiveness in the long run for sustainable growth.

In the second strategy, the government would seek to reduce social disparity between low-income and high-income earners and provide greater opportunities for the people based on economic, social, and political equality.

For the third strategy, the government would emphasize "green growth economy" and would promote the people's quality of life and environmentally friendly growth.

In the fourth strategy, the government would improve effectiveness in management, focusing on good governance.

Yingluck is Thailand's first female prime minister. She's been in office since July 2011.
