Event Details

"Foreign Investment & the Foreign Business Act"

The Foreign Business Act was enacted in AD 1999, with the intent of protecting Thai industries not yet ready to compete. An annual review mechanism was intended to allow industries over time to be opened up to competition, but that system has barely been used.

It is a generally accepted view that many industries are ready to compete, but they remain officially closed. Most companies would benefit from completion, rather than be harmed by it. The real harm is more likely to be the continue protection, allowing inefficient and non-competitive practices.

This seminar is a deep dive into an understanding of the workings of the regulation of foreign investment and insights into what can be done to contribute more to the competitiveness of the Thai economy. A Primer and Backgrounder will provide background understanding.
