Global tensions such as the US-China trade war, Brexit and crisis in Argentina and Turkey have affected the Asian market. For the Southeastern nations, these global headwinds were viewed as an excellent opportunity for growth. As such, the region is becoming a very lucrative alternative for supply-chain companies.
Amongst the Southeast nations, Thailand is expected to reach 3.5%-4.5% growth. Over THB 2 trillion are going to be invested by the state in projects such as the urban high-speed railway and energy production in the Eastern Economic Corridor. Moreover, the country’s current account surplus equivalent to 7.5% of GDP in 2018 made the THB currency strong. As a result, Thailand’s currency remained on the top spot amongst Asian currencies despite global market volatility.
Thailand is also becoming a top choice for real property investment all over the world. As such, several foreign investors have not been deterred by the country’s political climate. The country is the fourth most popular choice amongst Chinese property investors with USD 2.3 billion coming from the said source.
Despite political and global market tensions, Thailand continues to show robust growth. Read this post to see how foreign investors can benefit from the country’s economic climate for a successful company formation.
Choosing Thailand as an Offshore Company Destination
