BANGKOK, Thailand, 12 September 2022: H.E. Jurin Laksanawisit, Deputy Prime Minister of Thailand and Minister of Commerce, presided over the “Thai Industry’s Export Achievement Ceremony” to announce the achievement of Thailand’s air conditioning, refrigeration, electric and electronics industries at Bangkok RHVAC 2022 and Bangkok E&E 2022, at the area in front of Hall 103, BITEC, Bangkok, the organisers said through a Press release.
H.E.

Thailand is one of the world’s most important production bases of electric and electronics products, ranked the second largest exporter of air conditioners and the sixth largest exporter of refrigerators, chillers and cooling system, H.E.
