The Ministry of Commerce has given a New Year gift to Thai people today by managing to convince retail stores to offer discounts during the New Year season.Fifteen suppliers and retail store operators with more than 12,000 branches have agreed to provide customers with discounts of 20-70 percent for consumer products, stationeries, kitchenware and electrical appliances. The convenience stores, super stores, and hypermarkets joining the campaign include Central, the Mall, Robinson, Food Land, Tops Super Market, Big C, Tesco Lotus, Family Mart and Seven Eleven.

Commerce Minister General Chatchai Sirikalya admitted he himself was also happy with the result of today’s meeting, since it meant that the Ministry had succeeded in giving a New Year gift to Thai people. Nonetheless, he asked consumers not to take the opportunity to stockpile the discounted goods for price speculation, saying that they’d better buy the products for consumption purposes or as gifts for their special ones.

A press conference will be held on December 17th. The campaign will start from December 24th to 30th. General Chatchai disclosed that there were many other things the Ministry of Commerce was planning to realize as New Year gifts for Thai people.
