Thailand experienced considerable growth in GDP during 2007-2011. The country is expected to continue its growth momentum and grow with a CAGR of 7.5% over the next five years. The opportunities for doing business here are immense with a huge domestic market along with low cost manufacturing process, cheaper work force etc. Industries are having immeasurable opportunities in organized retail sector, healthcare sector, education, residential housing, banking and financial sector in Thailand.

Thailand registered a remarkable economic performance during past 30 years.
