H.E. Mr. Jacques Lapouge, French ambassador to Thailand and Mr. Eric Sayettat, the embassy's Economic Counsellor, recently visited Thai Gypsum plants and facilities at Laem Chabang, Chonburi – one of the Asia-Pacific's largest and most technologically advanced gypsum board plants – in order to observe its manufacturing processes that operate under "Gyproc Go Green" or "3G" philosophy, which focuses on conserving natural resources and reducing pollution in order to help reduce contributors to global warming.
