The government has opened an industrial relief centre at Rong Kluea Market in the Pratunam Phra-in area of Ayutthaya’s Wang Noi district.
Flood-ravaged industrial operators can use the site as a temporary production and warehousing base while rehabilitating and restoring their production facilities.
The centre covers 20,000 square metres, 12,000 of which are outdoor. It is aimed at helping those enterprises in Ayutthaya and Pathum Thani provinces that were hit by the devastating floods late last year.
Witoon Simachokedee, permanent secretary for the Industry Ministry, said the site cost 40 million baht and will offer a place to set up offices, make products and store raw materials and damaged equipment pending repair or demolition.
The site has a multi-purpose building and vacant space for 30 containers, which it will offer free for the first six months. Over 150 affected operators have expressed interest in using the relief centre.
