The Commercial Ministry of Thailand has signed a memorandum of understanding with King Power Company on selling products under One Tambon One Product (OTOP) programme at Suvarnabhumi International Airport, with expectation of earning 30 billion THB a year.

Under the agreement, King Power will act as a distributor for food, clothes, decoration items, and spa products at the airport. The OTOP stores will be running in November.

The ministry also plans to open more stores in other international airports such as Don Mueang and Chiang Mai, with an expected annual revenue 70 billion THB.

As a local entrepreneurship stimulus programme designed by former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, OTOP aims to support the locally made and market products of each Thai tambon (sub-district) while encouraging village communities to improve their products' quality.

OTOP products include traditional handicrafts, cotton and silk garments, pottery, fashion accessories, household items and food.-VNA
