Thailand’s Finance Minister Korn Chatikavanij is leading a road show in Hong Kong during the weekend to help relieve investor concerns in reaction to current political and economic developments. Leaving Friday for the March 19-21 promotional event, Mr Korn traveled in a bid to explain to investors the current economic and political development in Thailand for better understanding.
