Why Thailand?

Rapid growth and progressive government policies have sculpted Thailand into a genuine economic force, to form one of the biggest economies in the ASEAN region.

Located at the geographical heart of Southeast Asia, Thailand enjoys a strategic location and acts as the gateway to Asia – the largest growing economic market in the world. The country also offers convenient trade with China, India and ASEAN.

In addition, Thailand is home to a well-developed infrastructure in a free enterprise economy with generally pro-investment policies, making it relatively easy to do business in Thailand. It is also a vibrant tourist and conference destination.

For foreign investors, Thailand is one of ASEAN’s most attractive destinations to set up businesses. A comparative analysis of the costs of doing business and company set up in the region underscores Thailand as a cost-competitive location that also offers a quality lifestyle for expatriates.

A healthy macroeconomic environment, a positive regulatory business environment, attractive investment policies such as the Board of Investment (BOI) investment promotion scheme and International Headquarters (IHQ) scheme, plus a welcoming culture, clearly sets Thailand apart from other investment destinations in Asia.
