Exporting cars to international markets requires the industry to also adopt international standards along the supply chain to keep quality and price competitive. While Thailand has an adequate lowskilled labor force, it faces an acute shortage of highly skilled automotive engineers. Additionally, suppliers lack process and product engineering capabilities and innovation capacity to increase productivity and environmental performance in the automotive cluster in Thailand.
The project aimed at improving productivity and environmental performance of Thai auto and automotive parts production. It also aimed at enhancing networks, business and financial services for greening of the industry. Furthermore, it aimed at disseminating good practices and promoting the development and implementation of related policy and economic instruments.
