World Expo bid still stays: Yingluck
Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on Tuesday insisted that Thailand is not backing off from the race to bid the World Exposition 2020.
"The Tourism and Sports Ministry is proceeding with its plan. There is no change," she told reporters today.
Asked if Thailand would pull out the bid to pave way for Dubai - one of the cities bidding for the world’s largest expo, she said "I insist that there is nothing like that."
Yesterday Prime Minister’s Office Minister Niwatthamrong Bunsong-phaisan said the Yingluck government was assessing the worthiness of investing in a bid to stage the World Expo.
