BANGKOK -- After a four-month delay, the Bangkok International Motor Show opened to the public on Wednesday with the goal of reviving Thailand's automobile market.

The motor show, one of the largest in Southeast Asia, is the country's first large-scale exhibition since a coronavirus state of emergency was imposed in March. Considering last year's expo drew 1.6 million people over a two-week period, organizers are strictly enforcing disease prevention measures.
