Top 10 in carmaking within sight

The Industry Ministry is confident that automobile production will reach 2.1 million units this year and is predicting the country will be one of the top 10 producers of cars in the world.

"The automotive industry is our core industry, generating 360 billion baht of exports a year and employing 350,000 workers. It's clear that government policy will support Thailand in becoming the top producer in Asean and one of the top 10 in the world," said Industry Minister M.R. Pongsvas Svasti.
