- +

PRAN BURI : The Board of Investment (BoI) is scheduled to approve criteria today for the second phase of the eco-car project, requiring each car maker to invest at least 6.5 billion baht in making small, clean vehicles. 

Chokdee Kaewsang, the BoI's deputy secretary-general, said existing eco-car makers and newcomers have expressed intentions to create new versions of eco-cars, including Japan's Nissan Motor.

For the second phase, car makers are required to spend 6.5 billion baht in the manufacturing of eco-cars, compared with 5 billion baht in the first phase launched in 2007.
