Bangkok postpones order from Danish Medical Industry

Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has postponed its decision to buy medical instrument worth DKK126.25 million from Danish Medical Industry (DMI) for 30 days, Bangkok Governor Apirak Kosayodhin revealed on September 21.
     Apirak, who officially assumed the governor position early September, said he has asked Bangkok Deputy Permanent Secretary Pitinant Natrujiroj to negotiate with DMI for an extension of their offer until October 21 this year to allow the new governor a detailed review of the purchasing contract. DMI’s offer, which won the bidding conducted earlier, was only effective until September 21.
     The postponement is under Apirak’s move to give Bangkokians the confidence of transparent administration, which will see him launch a “clean and transparent Bangkok” project on September 26.
     Apirak has also put on hold the controversial purchase of Bt6.68 billion worth of fire-fighting equipment from Austria, approved by his predecessor Samak Sundaravej while acting as caretaker governor late August.
