Despite the floods at the end of last year, foreign direct investment in Thailand was up at whopping 62% in the first seven months of this year. This can only bode well for several industries here, industrial estates, transport (airport), and banking. The main statistic I found interesting was the Singaporean investors were ranked second in terms of # of applications and value of applications.
Foreign direct investment (FDI) over the first seven months of the year (Jan-July) was up62 per cent from the same period last year, Board of Investment (BoI) secretary-general Atchaka Sibunruang said on Tuesday.
