The first three months of 2019 have seemingly flown by, and as summer approaches, BOI has some exciting events ahead to update you on.
In the beginning of February, Thailand ranked first for mobile banking users, second for ownership of cryptocurrency, and third in mobile commerce, according to the Global Digital Report 2019 which includes insights into more than 230 countries and territories around the world. To stimulate targeted industries, including the Thai digital economy, and accelerate economic growth in the Kingdom in 2019, BOI has launched a new incentive package that celebrates the “Thailand Investment Year”. BOI has set a target for 2019 of 750,000 million baht or about $23.6 million USD after exceeding our investment goal last year.
In April, BOI will participate in MRO Americas 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia to showcase Thailand’s MRO sector. While in Atlanta, BOI will hold a seminar titled “Thailand Investment Year - What's NEW?” on Thursday, April 11, 2019 at the Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel. The discussions and content of the meeting will focus on the new investment measures and government support for companies looking to establish operations in Thailand.
