Diplomats set for mega-projects brief

The Foreign Ministry has invited diplomats for a briefing today on the general election and government mega-projects.

Foreign Minister Kantathi Suphamongkhon said yesterday he had invited diplomats for a briefing on the current situation at the Ministry this afternoon.

He said several companies had notified him that the original, April 28, deadline for firms to submit proposals relating to the mega-projects was too soon, so the government extended it by a month.

Kantathi insisted foreign companies were still interested in investing in Thailand despite the ongoing political instability, but said they needed the government to clarify some information, which he planned to do today.

The foreign minister said the international community saw the upcoming election as a sign of democracy, and that Thai people had the right to express their views.

They were also keeping a close eye on the ongoing protests, which have been peaceful, and hoped that Thailand would continue to prosper economically, Kantathi said.

While the anti-Thaksin rallies might cause some worries among foreign investors in the short term, it would not affect Thailand's image in the long run, he said.
