WHA is registered in the Stock Exchange Thailand (SET) and recently obtained permission from the development committee for the Easter Economic Corridor (EEC) in Thailand to establish a special e-commerce district.

In concrete terms, WHA purchased an area of 371.2 thousand square meter in Bang Pakong, Chachoengsao, for their special e-commerce district.

WHA also invested 1.3 billion Thai baht [41 million USD] in development projects for automation, distribution, and data centers.

“These two companies have become partners in the e-commerce district project of Chachoengsao. Apart from the company presence on the ground, this project also supports the national distribution system and online trade services.”
