฿35 million allocated to help prepare SMEs for flood and AEC


BANGKOK, 11 September 2012 – The Department of Industrial Promotion is allocating 35 million baht to a project to help Thai SMEs prepare for future flood and the advent of AEC. 

Director-General of the Department of Industrial Promotion Pasu Loharjun has stated that since last year’s flood, a number of Thai SMEs have been recovering slowly, partly due to the loss of information caused by the devastating flood. Some SMEs were able to retrieve the lost information, while others could not.

The Department of Industrial Promotion has, therefore, come up with a project focusing on enhancing the potentials of Thai SMEs in terms of information technology, which will help SMEs improve their production capacity and reduce production cost.

The 35-million baht project is also aimed at preparing these enterprises for future flooding and the formation of the ASEAN Economic Community, supporting e-marketing, e-supply, employment, and creating added-value for the industrial sector.
