The Prime Minister of Thailand has asked the public to help boost the domestic economy by buying the products of the famous “One Tambon One Product” project.

prayuth-says-buy-locally-madePrime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha said this is an opportune time for Thai people to help enliven the country’s economy. He said those looking for Christmas and New Year gifts should consider buying locally-made items. Not only does it spur economic growth, it also helps generate income for local producers.

OTOP products can be found at various locations including community markets and Khlong Phadung Krung Kasem near Government House in Bangkok.

He said if Thais support one another, it will create a chain of value and ensure sustainable economic development, adding that Thailand will then depend less on exports, which is something the country has been trying to achieve.
