Driving our clients towards their strategic objectives.

Thailand, ASEAN’s largest manufacturer of automobiles and auto parts, continues to expand its automotive production base, presenting a number of opportunities for foreign investors. 

Foreign investment in Thailand’s automotive sector is supported by a number of government policies and schemes. These include but are not limited to offering tax and non-tax incentives to eligible foreign automobile and auto parts manufacturing businesses operating in areas designated as automotive clusters, including the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC), as the Thai government seeks to promote Thailand as a production hub for green vehicles and support investment in emerging technologies and innovation.

Whether your organization is looking to invest or expand its automotive manufacturing operations or other related busines in Thailand, Siam Premier can assist you to structure your business to maximize incentives and minimize risk, to help you achieve your commercial and strategic objectives.
