But BoI has maintained the targets of the project value of Bt900 billion this year. It will stage the roadshow in the overseas countries in the second half of this year to update foreign investors with the situations in Thailand.

He has expected that the new BoI board would be appointed by the Cabinet before Songkran festival this month.
