October 24, 2011

Oct. 24 (Bloomberg) -- Thailand’s government will consider providing a “soft loan” of about 25 billion baht to help repair damage and rebuild infrastructure at seven industrial estates that have been shut down by flooding, Deputy Prime Minister Kittiratt Na-Ranong told reporters today.

“The soft loan facility will be proposed to the Cabinet for approval,” Kittiratt said. “We will set up a committee that will consist of government officials and representatives of industrial estate developers and manufacturers to help rebuild those complexes.”
