The Industry Ministry will call a meeting with Board of Investment (BoI) to work out measures for supporting Japanese businesses that might want to relocate to Thailand following the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
Industry Vice Minister Puttipong Punnakan said the BoI has been monitoring the impacts of the tsunami and quake. The meeting will aim to come up with a plan to provide privileges and support in special cases to Japanese businesses that want to relocate their production bases to Thailand, which is one of Japan’s main production bases.
Putipong said the results of the meeting would be forwarded for consideration of the council of economic ministries chaired by Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva, without the need to go to the BoI board.
