Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on October 28th presided over the opening ceremony of ‘Thailand’s Economic Future under the ASEAN Community’ exhibition at the Government Complex on Chaeng Watthana Road, Bangkok.

The Prime Minister said in her opening speech that ASEAN countries have committed to pushing for greater connectivity in four issues after their integration into a single market in 2015, namely the expansion of production base with a market of 600 million people, physical connectivity within ASEAN by upgrading all modes of transport, improvement of customs service and social security systems, and institutional connectivity by removing impediments to movements of vehicles, goods, services and skilled labor across borders.
