BANGKOK, 28 Nov 2013 The Board of Investment (BOI) has assigned its BUILD unit to organize a mini exhibition and net working event ‘SUBCON Thailand 2014’ in 3 provinces of different regions. 

Director of the BOI Unit for Linkage Industrial Development (BUILD) Narucha Ruchupan stated that the event will be co-hosted by UBM Asia (Thailand) Company Limited, the Alliance For Supporting Industries Association, and the Thai Subcontracting Promotion Association.

Mr. Narucha said that the exhibition will be the first of its kind in Thailand. It will be held in the northern, eastern and central regions from next month to March next year.

He indicated the goals of the event are to encourage contractors in regional zones to use locally produced industrial parts, as well as exchange of views on production & management among parts producers, particularly those in the industries producing machinery, electronic appliance and automobiles.

The roadshow will start on December 12th at The Empress Hotel in Chiang Mai, and will move to Ayutthaya on January 30th, 2014, and to Chonburi Province on March 20th.

According to the BUILD Director, the exhibition would feature five main activities focusing on networking between buyers and vendors which would open opportunities for subcontractors from Bangkok to visit producing factories in the said areas.
