Industry Minister Pongsawat Svasti spoke at the campaign launching by BOI under the theme “Unbeatable Thailand, Unparalleled Opportunities” that such plan is highly important to the country after the flood-impacted companies resumed production as a result of Thailand’s measures to alleviate investor problems from the recent flood crisis.
