Thailand’s first expo, business matching scheduled for mid-January in Yangon

Thailand Week 2015, the first exhibition and business matching event in Myanmar, will take place from 15 to 18 January at Myanmar Event Park here, aiming to seek new business opportunities.
The four-day event is organized by Thailand’s Department of International Trade Promotion, which has invited interested businesspersons to participate in the business networking session scheduled on 15 and 16 January, with public visits on the remaining two days.
More than 200 booths from 80 leading Thai companies will showcase their products and services, ranging from food and beverages, to health and beauty products, household utensils, garments, textiles and fashion accessories, automotive parts, and home decoration products.
“A business seminar regarding trade and investment policies between the two countries will also be conducted to educate business operators,” said Mr Boon Intiratana, Minister Counsellor of Commercial Affairs of the Royal Thai Embassy.
Thai investors have been keen on doing business in Myanmar over the past two years, he said, adding that the expo is expected to serve a good business platform for Myanmar entrepreneurs desirous of building business links with Thai manufacturers.
According reports, the Department of International Trade Promotion is planning a border trade exhibition in Mae Sot in Thailand from 28 January to 1 February.
The minister counsellor said invitations will be extended to Myanmar businesspersons to display their lines of products at the border trade fair.
Thailand, which is Myanmar’s second biggest trade partner, has reportedly chosen Mandalay, the second largest city in Myanmar, for a similar trade exhibition planned from 23 to 31 August, with the aim of promoting bilateral trade and investment.–GNLM
