The Industry Ministry opened the Industry Transformation Centre (ITC) in collaboration with Japanese firms at Kluay Nam Thai to support small- and medium-sized enterprises to research and develop innovative products, Industry Minister Uttama Savanayana said on Friday.

“Since the unofficial opening of the ITC at Klow Nam Thai eight months ago, 3,800 SMEs have joined the centre and also 100 innovative products worth up to Bt50 million have been developed at the centre,” Uttama said.

The centre would collaborate with Japanese firms in training and support Thai SMEs in four target groups, including raw material innovation, bio-innovation, logistics and e-commerce, he said.
