In a statement on Thursday, the BOI said SteelAsia’s 500,000-metric ton section mill project has been awarded the Green Lane Certificate of Endorsement on September 15.

The project is expected to start operations in July 2024 and would be employing 600 personnel and workers from the local town and nearby areas.
