The AEC Trade Center – Pantip Wholesale Destination will link Thai businesses with domestic and international partners, helping boost the economic recovery.
Housed in the old Pantip Plaza tech mall, the new trade hub is designed to meet all the needs of buyers and sellers under one roof.
AWC has established marketing strategies by collaborating with the Commerce Ministry’s Department of International Trade Promotion, the Board of Trade, 11 trade associations, the Federation of Thai Industries, and Yiwu, or the Zhejiang China Commodities City Group (CCC Group). CCC Group is a Chinese state-owned enterprise that develops and manages the world’s largest wholesale market for miscellaneous goods from Yiwu, China.
“Through this, we are encouraging Thai entrepreneurs to join hands with both public and private sectors alongside Yiwu to stimulate the local economy and establish Thailand as the largest wholesale destination in the region,” said Wallapa Trisorat, CEO and president of Asset World Corp.
The hub’s Yiwu Selection Thailand Showcase will offer products from China at wholesale prices for Thai buyers. Meanwhile, the IC Mall will showcase Thai manufacturers’ products for export to China via both offline and online channels, including platforms such as Tmall.com, JD.com, Alibaba.com, Koala.com, and the IC_Mall Wechat Application.
The wholesale hub comes equipped with a Solution Service Centre (SSC) that provides consultation services for import and export businesses, including business matching.
More than 400 wholesale shops will offer more than 50,000 products in 18 categories covering all types of goods, from clothing, furniture, and IT gadgets to household items, office supplies, food and beverage, toys and games, processed foods and fruits, cosmetics, and more.
Until December 6, customers can win free iPhone 12s and free stays at a luxury AWC affiliated hotel, in a lucky draw with prizes worth more than Bt10 million.
