The East Economic Corridor Office (EECO) has joined hands with Bank of Ayudhya to open the “Krungsri EEC Office”, with an aim to draw Japanese investors.

The EECO representative said that the collaboration between the office and the bank, which is presently managed by Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group of Japan, would draw more Japanese investors to Thailand’s EEC area.
The EECO representative added that the “Krungsri EEC Office” will be the first financial institution in the EEC areas, which can specially offer access to Japanese entrepreneurs. Moreover, the “Krungsri EEC Office” will collaborate with the government in promotion of S-curve industries in EEC areas, especially those related to robotics and automotives.
