The Prachuap Khirikhan Governor Mr. Weera Sriwattanatrakul has recently chaired a board meeting on setting up of an OTOP (One-Tambon-One- Product) and good products center of Prachuap Khirikhan and Pranburi. This center will be officially open at the end of September, 2012. Mr. Weera said that the Prachuap Khirikhan Provincial Office had allocated some annual budget under the provincial development plan of 2012. This budget is used to organize an OTOP fair at the OTOP and good products center in Pranburi district to promote local goods and products in Prachuap Khirikhan province for Thai and foreign visitors.
The fair also supports small and medium businesspeople to earn more income. The organizers of the event have already discussed on how to use an area belonging to the Infantry Headquarters, the venue where the event takes place regularly, to establish the center. The official opening, scheduled between 24 and 28 September 2012, will feature a big OTOP fair, selling of various kinds of wellknown Prachuap Khirikhan pineapple as well as processed products made from coconut and pineapple by factories in the province. Aiming to promote good quality products of Prachuap Khirikhan for tourists, this event is unmissible for those who would like to know more about locally made products of the province. Both Thais and foreigners are welcome to the OTOP fair and the opening of the OTOP center on the dates mentioned earlier.
