Board of Investment to add investment categories to boost Thai economy


BANGKOK, 1 September 2015  – The Board of Investment (BOI) will generate more investment incentives to attract potential investors to special economic zones (SEZ).

BOI Secretary-General Hirunya Suchinai said she believed that government policy, in addition to current tax breaks, will increase domestic investments. The board is also expected to adjust several incentives to streamline the investment process.

Mrs. Hiran added that the BOI is considering new investment categories to the existing list of 13 types that are entitled to its incentives, in a bid to bring in more investors. She indicated that there is room for investment growth in Thailand, given the attractive promotions already in place.
