DSD to promote Thailand as hub of elderly aged care
BANGKOK, 20 July 2016 (NNT)-The Ministry of Commerce has expressed its support for aged care businesses in Thailand as part of its plan to promote the country as a hub of aged care services.
Commerce Minister Apiradi Tantraporn has instructed the Department of Business Development (DSD) to quickly promote and raise the standards of the elderly care services.
She believed Thailand has the potential to become an aged care hub of the world due to the hospitality of Thai people, affordable fees and world-standard medical services.
According to Mrs. Apirado, around 442 age care service providers have already undergone the first phase of the DSD’s business development program.
Fifty-five others have already completed the second phase of development and are currently learning about the marketing strategies in the last phase. The business development program provides them with in-depth business advice and encourages them to meet the standard requirements.
