Explaining the need to delay announcing Thailand's grand ambitions at the Shanghai World Expo, Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) president Akapol Sorasuchart said the recent political crisis might have tarnished the country's image in the short-term.

"But looking forward, we plan to place Thailand back on the map through (the bidding of) the World Expo 2020".

At press time, Akapol said the working committee was tasked to study and prepare more details from six provinces, Ayutthya, Chonburi, Petchburi, Phuket, Chiang Mai and Chanthaburi, all of which had offered to be the bidding city.

Akapol said each province must come up with a proposal that should be vetted through by its respective private sector via a publicly-staged forum.
