Grand Sale; Chiang Mai deputy governor Thongchai Wongrianthong, Sa-nguan
Panyosook, Chiang Mai OTOP network president and Somsak Suthisan, head of
Office of Community Development, Chiang Mai.
There will be more than 400 booths displaying almost
3,000 products such as handicrafts, souvenirs, cloth, ornaments, herbs, spa
products and the sale will have a “golden minute” to purchase goods for
only one baht.
Thongchai Wongrianthong, Chiang Mai deputy governor revealed that Chiang
Mai was an attractive province for the north-east, south and central parts
to join in product distribution at this grand sale. Exchanging each
region’s products could make it a national OTOP fair rivaling the OTOP
fair at Muang Thong Thani organized by the government at the beginning of
the year. This year, the province expects to earn 1,500 million baht from
OTOP but, having already exceeded that target, the sky is now the limit.
