EEC panel seeks entry for foreign business travellers
The Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) subcommittee plans to seek approval from the committee chaired by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha to allow foreign business travellers to enter the country subject to quarantine.
The proposal is aimed at maintaining investment momentum this year, said Kanit Sangsubhan, secretary-general of the EEC Office.
The Japanese Chamber of Commerce, Japan External Trade Organisation and companies from South Korea and other countries have asked the government to permit foreign executives and technical personnel to enter Thailand to support continuous investment in the corridor, said Mr Kanit.
The proposal will be on the EEC committee’s agenda at a meeting scheduled for June 22, he said.
