The Thailand-based organizers of an international lighting industry exhibition on Thursday invited Myanmar businesses to take part in the upcoming event.
The Thailand Lighting Fair 2015 will take place at Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre from 19 to 21 August.
Officials of the Provincial Electricity Authority of Thailand (PEA) and The Exhibiz Co., Ltd held a press conference in Yangon prior to a seminar on promotion of electrical energy efficiency for businesses at the office of Republic of the Union of Myanmar Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry.
The fair will enable sellers and buyers to view, source or promote lighting-related products and technologies, said Pakwan Jiamjiroj, general manager of The Exhibiz.
The organizers said the fair will feature products relating to commercial, industrial and residential lighting, including displays by more than 250 international lighting companies.
Mr. Niwat Chayakul, assistant governor of the PEA, invited Myanmar businesses to visit the fair to discover new ideas in electrical energy efficiency and lighting solutions.
“As Myanmar is gradually liberalizing its economic sector, it is necessary for local enterprises to adjust and try to raise their productivity and competiveness in order to thrive in the era of the ASEAN Economic Community,” he said.
