The ministry is responsible for the promotion and regulation of industries. The ministry is headed by a Minister of Industry, Mrs Atchaka Sibunruang.[1]


The Ministry of Industry started out in 1933 as a division or the Industrial Division (Thai: กองอุตสาหกรรม) in the Department of Commerce (Thai: กรมพาณิชย์) (now Ministry of Commerce) of the Ministry of Economics (Thai: กระทรวงเศรษฐกิจ) (now defunct).
