Business Environment

With the passing of country’s 88 year old King Bhumibol in October 2016, Thailand has entered an official mourning period of possibly up to one year. Although the current political climate presents some degree of uncertainty for foreign investors, Thailand's relatively strong infrastructure, business-friendly and pro-investment policies continue to encourage investment inflows and support sustained economic success. Being strategically located in the heart of Southeast Asia, Thailand presents a full range of export and trade opportunities for Canadian businesses across multiple sectors. Canadian companies doing business with or working on projects connected to the sovereign should remain vigilant and exercise caution.
