Storage businesses urged to prepare for AEC


BANGKOK, 17 August 2012  – The Commerce Ministry has urged the entrepreneurs of warehouses, silos, and cold storages to urgently prepare themselves for the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC). 

Department of Internal Trade (DIT) Director-General Vatchari Vimooktayon said storage businesses such as warehouse, silo, and cold storage are vital businesses to the economic development. She explained that they must study the changes which will eventually take place when the AEC takes effect in 2015 in order not to be left out.

Ms Vatchari stated that the DIT has been informing entrepreneurs and holding seminars about the AEC so as to prepare them for the changes. A seminar was held on Thursday, targeting storage businesses urging them to adjust their strategies to suit the upcoming AEC.
