The 41st Bangkok International Motor Show opens to the public after being pushed back twice since March.

“This is more than the motor show, but also Thailand’s reputation because the other event organizers will be watching,” said Prachin Eamlumnow, chief executive of head organizer of the event, Grand Prix International.

Thailand will be the first to host a motor show on this scale since the pandemic, he told reporters.

Thailand has had no locally transmitted cases of coronavirus for about seven weeks and has been easing restrictions imposed to tackle the outbreak, seeking to get its economy moving again.
