Thailand’s economy continues to grow significantly faster than Western markets, and is one of the most attractive places to do business because of strong government incentives, sufficient infrastructure, relative transparency, and the skilled and cost effective labour available here. Doing business in Thailand is also stimulated by well-defined policies geared towards liberalization and free trade, social and political stability and the country’s strategic location in Asia.
