Indian brands can easily choose the market it intends to make the greatest impression in – be it among the more mature markets of Thailand, Malaysia or Indonesia; orthe less developed markets of Vietnam, Myanmar and Cambodia. And InterPlas Thailand is a proven medium with numerous matchmaking and networking opportunities within ASEAN countries,” he said.
