The new plant in Thailand will be the only large-scale plasma derivatives plant in Southeast Asia, and it is expected to play an important role in enabling Thailand to supply itself with plasma derivatives.
Green Cross President Soon-tae Cho said, "This project was possible because the Thai National Blood Center and Green Cross have maintained a good relationship over the past 14 years, and have supported the Thai government's policy of improving the health of the Thai people by supplying high quality blood products." He also hoped that "this project will boost cooperation between Thailand and Korea."
Mr Young-ho Kim, vice president and head of Green Cross's Overseas Business Division, said, "This plant-scale export confirms that Green Cross is internationally recognized for its top-notch technology in the global plasma derivatives industry." He also added that the company will "strive to boost our plant export business and provide momentum for new growth industries. This contract will act as a bridge to occupying emerging markets, including those in Southeast Asian countries".
