“Glasstech Asia 2012 comes at a time when the Thai government is establishing a US$1.6 billion insurance fund as part of a five-pronged, US$85 billion program to jump-start the national economy after it has been hit by floods. With Glasstech Asia 2011 having the record of generatingUS$11,710,000.00 in sales and potential sales over the next 12 months, I am expecting Glasstech Asia 2012 to give a good boost to the Thai economy. We hope to help boost the Thai economy to grow to around 4 per cent in 2012 with factories returning to full capacity, as rebuilding efforts and the policy stimulus get underway,” said MrGanCheeSiong, Chairman of the Singapore Glass Association.


It is also timely that the show should return to Bangkok in 2012, since the last time it was in Bangkok was way back in 2007.
