Representatives from both companies have make enquires and wanted to hold talks with related ministers, he said, adding that they were told to hold meets with officials of the Finance Ministry and the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society.

"It is a good sign that global IT giants are showing strong interest in Thailand".

Somkid held talks with Finance Ministry's executives today on the global economic situation. Thailand has to be well-prepared to deal with the declining global economy, he said.

Domestic consumption, Somkid said, showed signs of improvement in October, reflecting success of "Eat, Shop, Spend", the ongoing economic stimulus package.
