2018 will be a crucial year for Thailand as the Board of Investment (BOI) sets investment target
at 720,000 million baht for its flagship industrial zone, the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC).

The BOI is confident that Thailand will meet its EEC investment application target of 720,000 million baht after an impressive figure in 2017, in which, witnessed total investment value reached at 641,978 million baht, a 22% increase from 2016. Out of total investments, 296,889 million baht are direct investments in the EEC, meanwhile 392,141 million baht went to the country’s 10 S-curve industries under Thailand 4.0 which includes automotive, aerospace, electronics, industrial robots, packaging, medical devices and many more. According to the BOI, the largest foreign investors are Japan, followed by Singapore, China, United States and Netherland.

Thailand’s goal to progress its economic cluster to support S-curve industries as the new engine of growth means that manufacturers will have to constantly upgrade their manufacturing technologies and know-hows to keep up with the industry evolution. Technology exhibitions such as Manufacturing Expo offer a great opportunity for industrialists to discover the most leading-edge machinery and technology to improve productivity and product value.
