Tokyo and Bangkok are cooperating to create a program that will provide mutual support to small and medium-size firms that suffered severe damage during Thailand’s recent flooding, bilateral sources said Friday.

Under the Otagai Business Continuity project, companies in Japan and Thailand will dispatch technical experts to the affected firms or offer to undertake production for them, the sources said. “Otagai” means “mutual” in Japanese.
