Japanese Investors 'Undaunted' By Amnesty Protests

(7 November) There has been no sign of decrease in Japanese investment in Thailand in spite of the ongoing protests, said Mr. Susumu Uneno, President of Japan Chamber of Commerce (JCC).

According to Mr. Uneno, the Japanese investors had become familiar with Thai political cultures and have not yet withdrawn their investment in the kingdom like they did during the previous political restraints in the past couple of years.

Once the political crises are solved, the investors always return, Mr. Uneno said, creating a lesson for the Japanese to "learn and adapt to Thai political problems".

Mr. Kosit Panpiemras, Executive Chairman of Bangkok Bank, agrees with Mr. Uneno and said that there is no need to worry about the current political movement as many financiers are seeking long term investments.
