The private sector in the southern province of Pattani has opened a learning centre to prepare the locals for the arrival of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC).

The organisers consist of Pattani Concrete Company Limited and the Provincial Administration Office. According to the company, the learning centre’s main objective is to arm the local with knowledge, and to give something back to the public.

The centre can also be used as a venue for lecture and seminar.

The organisers introduced the newly built center with a mini seminar on leadership and innovation, featuring guest speakers from Songklanakarin University.
