  15. 15. The establishment of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) in 2015 will only further enhance Thailand’s attractiveness. The AEC will serve as a massive single market that is fully integrated into the global economy with equitable economic development. The 10 member states of ASEAN collectively offer close to 600 million consumers. The AEC will open new doors to manufacturers by transforming ASEAN into a region with free movement of goods, capital, services, investment and workforce. Excellent logistics systems: Thailand boasts world-class infrastructure, including state-of-the-art ports, airports and communication facilities. Suvarnabhumi International Airport and Laem Chabang Deep Sea Port offer manufacturers the transportation foundation they need for their export operations. The 225 km of inter-city motorways – currently in expansion – linking Bangkok to other regions of the country, also facilitate overall domestic transportation. In addition, Thailand is a hub of transportation in the Southeast Asia region; the perfect route through the east-west and north-south corridor that can distribute products to nearby countries including Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Myanmar, Malaysia, Singapore and also southern China from the north and northeast of the Kingdom. Development of electronics clusters: In an effort to promote productivity and efficiency in the industry, the government has been proactive in encouraging the development of electronic clusters. Proximity between firms and their input suppliers within the clusters enhances communication and facilitates flow of goods. At the same time, clustering helps to reduce logistics costs through improved supply chain management. Manufacturers also benefit from shared core technological innovations and human resource development programs. Thailand is a good operating base for us due to being the center of the Indochinese peninsula. Here we have quick access to export markets in surrounding countries. Additionally, Thailand’s infrastructure is well established. A lot of suppliers have already shifted their production here. -Mr. Hirotaka Murakami, CEO of the Panasonic Group of Companies in Thailand-
