Diesel price to be maintained at 30 baht per liter

BANGKOK (NNT) – The government’s energy policy administration council has approved a proposal to subsidize the pricing of diesel in order to maintain the retail price at 30 baht.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Energy Supattanapong Punmeechaow said the subsidy will be provided from the 9.2 billion baht Energy Fund to maintain the retail price of diesel at 30 baht per liter, as the increase of crude oil price has driven up the current retail price in Thailand to over such threshold.

The council has also approved a contingency plan to seek a 20 billion baht loan to support the Energy Fund in case of low liquidity, or should the Dubai crude oil price exceeds 87.5 US dollars per barrel.

The Minister of Energy said the government could lower the excise tax for petroleum to help bring down the retail price, which is an option exercised by previous governments.

Meanwhile, LPG prices will continue to be capped at 318 baht per 15-kilogram cylinder to help vendors and to prevent price increase of consumer goods.

The minister also mentioned that truck companies affected by the current situation are entitled to special Social Security benefits provided by the Ministry of Labour. Each operator can receive a payout of 3,000 baht per one employee, with a maximum amount capped at 200 employees.

BANGKOK (NNT) – The Thai Chamber of Commerce is anticipating the government’s 55 billion baht aid measures to help reduce living costs will generate cash flow and increase economic values, leading to a 1-1.5% GDP growth this year.

Mr Sanan Angubolkul, Chairman of the Thai Chamber of Commerce (TCC) and Board of Trade of Thailand, said the Thai economy will be seeing more activities from increased spending from the general public in the final 2 months of this year, during which people are expected to travel and purchase gifts for the holiday season.

He said the government’s approval of an additional budget will help increase the purchasing power among the more vulnerable population, resulting in the increase of economic activities, and a 95 billion baht cash flow.

The Cabinet has approved a total of 54.6 billion baht to fund four economic and living cost-cutting schemes, including an additional allowance for holders of the state welfare card, payouts for people with special needs, more allowance for the 50:50 co-pay campaign, and a voucher campaign for eligible spending.

The TCC also expects that more construction works and spending for housing restoration will be coming after the flood disaster. The government’s aid campaigns can help cut down the costs faced by flood victims.

The TCC chairman said outcomes from the government aid measures are expected to help generate cash flow and drive this year’s GDP by 1-1.5%.

Not only did many of the PoC proposals come up with unique ideas, they also accommodated needs emerging from financial institutions’ operations and market expansion. At Cyberport FinTech InnoCon 2021, these successful cases will be shared with the industry and will undoubtedly inspire further financial innovations. As a spotlight event of the Cyberport Venture Capital Forum, we also hope that the Conference will promote cooperation between financial institutions and start-ups and encourage financial institutions to support start-ups’ long-term development in the form of corporate venture.”

Third party logistics is an essential element of our integrated suite of service offerings.

8 Harbord Square: London’s First Blank Canvas Homes for the Creatively Adventurous

LONDON, UK – Media OutReach – 22 October 2021 – New to the market, 8 Harbord Square is a collection of 82 loft style apartments, inspired by the history of the London docklands and Canary Wharf and influenced by the warehouse districts of Lower Manhattan. Designed completely open plan with no fixed walls and exposed interior features, purchasers can enjoy lifelong autonomy to shape their homes to match their lifestyle. Completely unique and one-of-a-kind the apartments at 8 Harbord Square are available from £745,000.

 

Brian De’ath, Director of Residential Sales at Canary Wharf Group, comments: “The apartments at 8 Harbord Square are unlike anything else available in London, providing the perfect canvas for purchasers to creatively shape their new home. We are passionate about delivering developments that bring a sense of character and individuality to Canary Wharf and London as whole.

 

“We fully expect the development to appeal to people who want all the benefits of a new-build home yet crave the ‘urban loft lifestyle’ of Manhattan and London, and are attracted to the free-flowing, open yet intimate space, the apartments offer.”

Designed by leading architecture practice Karakusevic Carson Architects, 8 Harbord Square reflects the industrial heritage of Canary Wharf, with exposed brickwork, concrete ceilings, large industrial-style windows and engineered timber flooring.

 

Paul Karakusevic, Founding Partner at Karakusevic Carson Architects, commented: “The solid brickwork façade is organised into simple vertical bays, with rhythmical brick piers. Decorative panels and crisply articulated cornices help define the window bays, roof line and grand two-storey base. Residential park-side entrances and retail units sit behind the deep, glazed-brick colonnades of the ground floor base to create an active frontage to the square.

 

“We hope that the building will help define `Harbord Square’ with a building that, on the one hand echoes the Wharf history, while on the other will perform to highly sustainable modern standards, with a stripped back palette of materials and flexible space.”

 

Designed to offer up unlimited opportunities to create flexible living spaces, there are two apartment types available at 8 Harbord Square – the 809sq. ft. Prospect loft and 1,035 sq. ft. Gramercy loft. The only fixed elements within the apartments are the kitchens and bathrooms, which have been designed with modern features to stylishly contrast with the warehouse-style interior features.

 

The kitchens include stainless steel countertops and matching cabinetry, with metal effect splashbacks. Integrated Siemens appliances include fridge/freezer, induction hob, single oven, dishwasher and combined washer/dryer.

 

Contemporary bathrooms are a feature of each apartment with subway style glazed wall tiles, Crittal walk-in shower enclosures, freestanding double-ended baths, double wash hand basins, wall-mounted WCs and backlit mirrored storage cupboards.

 

The concept of dressing the open plan spaces at 8 Harbord Square will be an exciting challenge for purchasers, with the freedom to create the ultimate loft-style pad. However, for those that may need a helping hand, the sales team will connect owners with some outstanding designers that can inspire, create and curate a standout home.

 

8 Harbord Square forms a crucial part of Wood Wharf, a new and growing neighbourhood of Canary Wharf, comprising a well-considered mix of flexible offices, boutique retail, restaurants and spacious green spaces interspersed with architecturally outstanding residential buildings.  

 

Residents of 8 Harbord Square enjoy direct access to Harbord Square Park, whilst the building will be adjacent to The Lanes, which will bring a vibrant energy reminiscent of Soho, with an eclectic mix of shops, bars, cafes and restaurants.

 

Residents will also benefit from all of the exciting aspects that make Canary Wharf a 15-minute city. With direct access to a wealth of independent and global brands, beautiful homeware stores, galleries, organic health food shops, pop-up street-food vendors and panoramic rooftop restaurants, Canary wharf offers you everything you could want to enjoy on your doorstep. Discover what’s going on around the Estate with the year-round arts and events programme.

We’re excited to welcome Spearad to Tremor, as well as its founders, Erhard Neumann and Mark Thielen – with their deep expertise in addressable TV – to our leadership team.”
