The Primary Industries and Mines Department will spend Bt147 million to develop six key industries this year to lower logistics costs by Bt3.5 billion. The six target industries are food, petrochemicals, electronics, automobiles and parts, textiles and garments, and rubber products. The strategic plan consists of three main thrusts: producing logistics-management professionals for manufacturing sites, promoting cooperation and linkages among business units in manufacturing supply chains, and supporting factors to raise the competitiveness of supply chains in the targeted industries.
