Thailand came 7th as a top investment destination of APEC business leaders over the next 12 months according to Pricewaterhouse Coopers’ “2015 Apec CEO Survey: CEO Confidence in Asia Pacific Shaken but Strong”. This was a result of Thailand’s strategic location as one of the world’s largest agricultural and manufacturing bases as well as an intra-regional trade and logistics hub, PwC Thailand chief executive Sira Intarakumthornchai said. Moreover, PwC Thailand believes that growing demand for infrastructure, increased use of digital technology and continued foreign fund inflows will continue to help draw investments to the country.
As reported by Reuters, Thailand’s BOI revealed that during the period of January – September this year, 1,769 investment projects worth 665 billion Baht were approved.
