PM outlines Thailand's automotive hub vision

Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva has declared Thailand's vision to be the automotive production hub of Asia.

He told the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, yesterday that the country has geared its policy towards becoming the region's major auto producer.

Mr Abhisit told the ``Thailand and the Global Automotive Industry'' session that the vision was buoyed by the government's competitive export-oriented industry well known for producing high-quality one-tonne pickup trucks, eco-cars and motorcycles.
