Oct. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Thailand’s floods may cause about 140 billion baht ($4.55 billion) of financial damage to manufacturers in seven industrial estates, the government’s insurance regulator said.
The manufacturers have insurance coverage totaling about 457 billion baht, Chantra Purnariksha, secretary-general of the Office of Insurance Commission, told reporters in Bangkok today.
Japanese insurers account for 80 percent of the total insured value, she said.
