Meeting to discuss helping SMEs

- +

The Joint Standing Committee on Industry, Commerce and Banking (JSCICB) will meet on Nov 5 to discuss measures to help manufacturers affected by the wage hike policy, Pongsak Assakul, chairman of the Thai Chamber of Commerce, said on Wednesday. 

The JSCICB will discuss ways to provide assistance for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) which are likely to be severely hurt by the 300 baht daily minimum wage, which will take effect in the remaining 70 provinces from Jan 1.

The minimum wage was increased to 300 baht a day in April in the country's seven most developed provinces: Bangkok, Phuket, Samut Prakan, Nakhon Pathom, Nonthaburi, Pathum Thani and Samut Sakhon.
