GPV announcement: His Majesty the King of Thailand passed away

Dear valued customers,

Based on the recent international news, His Majesty the King of Thailand passed away peacefully at Siriraj Hospital on October 13, 2016.

The Prime Minister’s Office has declared a 30-days mourning period in Thailand. There is an announcement for one day off only for government officers for today, October 14, 2016. As of the spirit of His Majesty the of King Thailand should continue to operate as normal. Private firms are operative as normal as of today. 

His Royal Highness Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn announced yesterday that he was ready to step up as heir apparent to the throne, but would prefer to “wait for a proper time” as the country is still mourning the passing of His Majesty the King.

GPV in Bangkok is operating as usual and we do not expect any effect in working hours and employees.

As of today, all our local suppliers are also operating as normal. The logistics from GPV to the airport/seaport and transportation of our employees are running as usual.

We are following the situation and will keep you updated if there should be a significant change.

 

Yours faithfully,

  

GPV Asia (Thailand) Co., Ltd.
