    Thailand off investment list for foreign business

    BREAKING NEWS


    Thailand off investment list for foreign business



    Singapore (dpa) - China and Japan share first place as Asia's best investment destinations for foreign firms, a published study said on Friday.

    More than 200 international company executives participated in the survey conducted by financial advisory firm Ernst & Young and the Japan External Trade Organization.

    Seven out of 10 of the executives polled were in companies operating in Asia, said The Straits Times.

    China and Japan each were picked by 27 per cent of the respondents for the joint-first spot.

    The runner-up was India, with 11 per cent.

    Singapore and Hong Kong were tied in third place, with 10 per cent each.

    South Korea emerged fourth with 5 per cent, trailed by Vietnam with 4 per cent. Thailand, Malaysia and Taiwan all were selected by 1 per cent of the respondents.

    In terms of foreign direct investment projects, China attracted 1,171 or 38 per cent of the investments that went into Asia in 2007. India followed, with 676, and Vietnam, with 260. Thailand had 120.





    Thailand, Malaysia and Taiwan all were selected by 1 per cent of the respondents.


    I wonder why!

    Thailand is not in the same league as China or Singapore, but the above speaks volumes for where Thailand is heading.

    The politicians are now shuffling the deckchairs for when the good Captain passes away and the ship sinks. I see no real effort at keeping HMS Siam afloat.

    A good captain would see to it that the ship doesn't sink, rather than be so concerned with retaining all the lifeboats for himself.

    Why bother with Taiwan when one can go straight to the source in China?

    Hahahahahahaha, Singapore - a tiny island with a population less than Bangkok's beats the living shit out of Thailand . . .

    Knock, knock imbeciles! Possibly time to look again at foreigner's and foreign firm's rights.

    (though I do wonder why Malaysia is not popular)

    The source of all the cheap labor one use to be able to find in Taiwan - much cheaper to get the mainland buggers to do it.

    Taiwan still maintains a relative competitive advantage in very high tech, high volume production. China cannot match it. Malaysia, Philippines and Singapore, to a lesser extent, still enjoy some advantages mostly due to corporate tax rates (in the case of Singapore) and the cost of locating a regional high tech HQ.

    China will eclipse all of these countries within a decade, with the exception of perhaps Taiwan. They really do enjoy a fantastic productive advantage.

    Insofar as Thailand, give me a break. Thailand has some advantages in Auto and auto parts production, but apart from that, and food production, you'd be hard pressed to find any sustainable competitive advantages.

    Thailand will be marginalized in this decade. I'm sorry to say that, because this is my home, and I wish it to prosper, but it is true.
