Thailand lifted its state of emergency on March 19, 2014, as tensions cooled following weeks of anti-government protests. This is promising news for Bangkok and tradeshow season, particularly Petfood Forum Asia and FIAAP/Victam/GRAPAS Asia, which are being held in April.
At the height of demonstrations, protesters shut down key road junctions in Bangkok and blockaded government ministries.
