The business sector on Monday called on anti-government protesters to move out of Ratchaprasong intersection, and asked the government and the red-shirt United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) to settle their political dispute as soon as possible.
The Ratchaprasong Square Trade Association (RSTA) and the Thai Shopping Centre Association (TSCA) made the call at a press conference.
They asked the protesters to leave Bangkok's prime business and shopping area immediately as many thousands of shops, vendors and employees had already been affected.
The two associations said many families were totally dependent on their daily earnings from their businesses there.
