Biofuels Conference in Thailand
In August 2004, the delegate members from China, Japan, Brazil, South Korea, Germany, and ASEAN met in Bangkok, Thailand for a conference on biofuels, an industry that derives fuels from renewable natural resources rather than artificial pollutants"(Griggers 1). As one of the five leading food exporters of the world, Thailand has a big competition in order to have a biofuels industry in their land. "The government has further strengthened the industry by creating the Department of Alternative Energy Development, which plans to build a biodiesel plant in Chang Mai (Griggers 1). The U.S Government has also decided to give the Thai Government a loan of Fifty Thousand U.S Dollars for palm-oil extraction (Griggers 1).
