    Investment potential in Thailand remains high 

    The current situation in Thailand with political conflicts among the people, the southern border problem, the world economic slump, and lately the action taken by the Thai court in suspending 76 projects in Map Ta Put industrial zone, seems to affect investors’ decision-making in putting their investment in Thailand.

    However, quite a number of investors are still confident to expand their investment in Thailand such as LG Electronics (Thailand) Co., Ltd., and Nissan Motors.
