Statement of Grounds
The grounds for promulgation of this Royal Decree are as follows: King Amphoe Umphang of Amphoe Mae Sot, Changwat Tak, is of wide and infertile territory extremely far from Amphoe Mae Sot, Changwat Tak, the communications with the Amphoe and the Changwat require the travels through wild and mountains and, for the sake of quickness, through Burma, and are thus difficult and insecure. It is expedient to elevate the said King Amphoe to Amphoe, with a view to supporting the administration and the provision of public facility and to promoting the local development.
