Pirated goods will be wiped out from six locations in the country in the next month, Intellectual Property Department (IPD) director-general Thosapone Dansuputra has vowed.

The targeted locations are Maboonkrong (MBK) shopping centre, Pantip Plaza, Klong Thom, Ban Mor and Chatuchak weekend market. Outside Bangkok, crackdowns have been launched at the Rong Klua market in Sa Kaeo on the border with Cambodia.

Massive raids were conducted earlier this month in response to an order issued by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, who chaired the International Economic Policy Committee which decided to step up efforts to tackle counterfeit products in the country.
