BANGKOK (NNT) – The government is ready to help businesses affected by a giant container ship blocking the Suez Canal in Egypt as the supply chain in many countries is beginning to suffer hardship from the blockage.
Deputy government spokeswoman Rachada Dhnadirek said Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has followed the situation closely to find ways to help Thai exporters and importers affected by the blockage.
She said the prime minister has acknowledged the private sector’s concerns, but believes a resolution will be swift due to the coordinated salvage effort.
Ms Rachada was also allaying concern about oil shortages, saying the country has imported oil from several suppliers and oil companies have sufficient stockpiles to last.
