BANGKOK, 16 August 2012 – Celebrating its 10th year anniversary on Wednesday, Thailand Post announced the launch of an EMS Center to provide a faster and more effective express mail service.
Thailand Post President Anusara Chittmittrapap has revealed that the company will continue to improve its service and transport systems after the service has reached its 10th year anniversary. Thailand Post has invested 18 million baht in setting up the EMS Center near the Government Complex on Chaengwattana Road.

As for the free internet service, the Minister said the ICT will complete the installment of free internet hotspots at 1,200 branches of Thailand Post across the nation within this year.
