Rebuilding Thailand after the floods

The Danish Embassy in Bangkok is planning a joint presentation of Danish companies’ capabilities.  Thailand has been hit by some of the worst floods in the last 50 years. There have been widespread human suffering, loss of life and damage to the livelihood and property of many people.

Also the otherwise successful and expanding Thai industry and business sector has suffered. Several of the industrial parks housing the majority of the country’s export industry have been damaged by flooding. Infrastructure, the retail sector etc. have also been affected.

Even though the flooding is not over, focus is directed toward rebuilding physical structures and machinery as well as restoring investor confidence. Both Thai and foreign companies will have to spend large amounts within a short time to restart operations as quickly as possible.

Needless to say, there will be a tremendous demand in the private sector for everything from cables and components to cleaning equipment for industries. The public sector will need to invest substantially in equipment and know-how concerning flood protection, water supply services, etc.

The Embassy is planning a joint promotion towards both the private and public sector, where Danish suppliers of relevant products and know-how can get acquainted with the situation and meet important players.

Tentatively the arrangement is scheduled to take place in first half of December 2011.

The programme will be in the form of presentations, networking activities and individual meetings. Thai guests will include representatives from major companies, industrial parks, business associations as well as Ministries and relevant municipalities such as the BMA.

Companies are invited to indicate their interest as soon as possible to:

Royal Danish Embassy
