Thailand – land of investment – Many opportunities at the centre of ASEAN, a growing market with 600+ million consumers

Thailand is located at the geographic centre of ASEAN and is an ideal logistics base to serve the region and countries beyond. Free-trade agreements have been established within ASEAN and with China, India, Australia and New Zealand to facilitate trade and investment. This fact coupled with Thailand Board of Investment incentives and a reasonable priced, high quality labour force, good infrastructure and a stable economy make Thailand an ideal steppingstone for expansion into ASEAN.

Finpro, Royal Thai Embassy and Thailand Board of Investment (BOI) invite you to a seminar where you will get the opportunity to learn more about Thailand and the possibilities you have for doing business there.

Thailand fulfils many of the key factors required for an attractive destination:
– Young, abundant talent
– Sustained cost competitiveness
– Healthy and manageable turnover rates
– Emphasis on quality, information security
– Enabling Business Policy and regulations
– Access to ASEAN, a growing market with 600+ million consumers

The seminar offers:
– An update of the latest development in the government policies and incentives
– New business opportunities in Thailand for Finnish companies
– Testimonials from Finnish companies doing business in Thailand
