  • Good morning (afternoon) all members of the ______________. It is a great pleasure for me// to be with you today // in your beautiful country of Germany // to discuss potential business opportunities for both you,// and the people of Thailand.// My presentation today is entitled, // “ Thailand: Detroit of Asia”.
  • My remarks will cover the following topics: Where are We. Where will we go. How will we go and Why Thailand.
  • Let’s first look at // where we are// with respect to the Thai Automobile Industry .
  • This slide depicts the current changes// in the Thai automotive market. It represents// the history of automotive policy, // government support,// and local content regulations.// The Thai automotive industry // has been in continuous development from being only //a vehicle assembly business, // to a full car manufacturer. Now, we fully compete on the stage of // global car competition .
  • Let’s first look at Thailand ’s current production capacity for the 12 major assemblers in the industry . As you can see at the bottom right hand corner of this chart, // Thailand ’s production capacity for 2005 is expected to be around 1.369 million units . This will be expanded to more than// 1.5 million units in the near future.
  • Our domestic market is comprised of // both pickup trucks and passenger cars // with the majority, of 58%, being in the pickup segment. Passenger cars represent only 33%. The remaining share consists of other commercial vehicles. For local content, pick up utilizes almost 100% of local content while Passenger car utilizes local content around 30-70%.
  • Here is the grouping of the type of companies //that contribute to the Thai automotive industry. As you can see,// there are 12 foreign joint venture assemblers in Thailand, 709 tier 1 companies, //and approximately 1,000 tier 2&3 local supplier companies
  • The production of vehicles and parts has contributed to Thai economy at 16% of gross domestic product (GDP ). While the number of employed person Hiring in the auto industry is 8% from the overall employment .
  • This slide depicts the movement of // Production, Sales, and Exports for Thailand over past 12 years. 1997 and 1998 represented the period of our financial crisis //where we experienced a tremendous downturn in our industry // as well as most other businesses. However, //since 1999, we have enjoyed steady growth, // where today we will achieve all-time volume records for all 3 categories.
  • The exports of vehicles and auto parts rank # 2// among all products exported by Thailand. Only computers rank higher. Thus, //you can see the important role that // the Thai auto industry plays in the total economy of Thailand.
  • This slide shows the 2004 world ranking for// auto production and sales. As you might guess, // The U.S. ranks just ahead of Japan in production // with nearly 12 million units, //while their sales are far ahead of any other country in the world. Germany ranks #3 in production //and #4 in sales. Thailand is #15 in production and maintain number 17 in sales. I would like to note that //Thailand is expected to rank #14 in production in 2005 //and #17 in sales. We will celebrate //our 1-millionth production units this November// which we consider quite a milestone for the industry .
  • In 2005,//we expect production to grow to about 1.1 Million units, //comprise of 680,000 units for the domestic market, //and 500,000 units for exports. Toyota will top all company export manufacturers //with about 150,000 units, followed by Mitsubishi, And the combination of Ford and Mazda.
  • Now, let’s see where we will go from here.
  • We have an ambitious target as we strive to become // the “Detroit of Asia”. By 2010, // we expect to produce approximately 1.8 million units // with exports representing about 40% of the business. // We also expect to be the world’s production base for 1-ton pickup trucks // and already have a pretty good start at this. We also expect to be //a sizeable production base for both motorcycles and OEM and REM parts for the industry.
  • Now, turning to “How to go?”
  • First of all ,// we need to strengthen the competitiveness of our part s suppliers through an Automotive Human Resource Development Project , // which will be a joint effort between the Japanese government, // the Thai Governme nt, // and the private sector. // We will focus on improving engineering capability, // die &mould making capability ,// and manufacturing capability. // The project will start in the fourth quarter of this year // by training 2,000 trainers, then, each trainer will teach 100 trainees in their own companies. We expect that 200,000 trainees will be trained in this 5-year plan.
  • Moreover, The automotive cluster will set up the R&D and Training fund // to strengthen the human resource competitiveness.// The source of funding for this project will come exclusively from //the car manufacturers and parts makers. 90% of the money will be used by // car assemblers with the balance used by SME’s. Moreover,//Donator will benefit from tax privilege, the reduction in corporate income tax by 2 times of expense amount.
  • The expansion of the FTA, //or Free Trade Agreement, is another way to expand our business.// Thailand is in the process of negotiating// & implementing FTA’s with 8 countries and //two economic group, //namely BIMSTEC and ASEAN to promote free trade of its products.
  • We have already seen great progress with the FTA’s. For instance, with Australia, the tariff reduction has produced a significant increase in our exports .
  • This FTA made perfect sense as our automotive industry’s can gain much from one another. This can be the case with many other countries in the future.
  • We expect great opportunities to exist between both partners as it will improve economies of scale due to production increases.
  • These pluses are also apparent in the non-production end of our business, such as service training and various technology transfers. The aftermarket business benefits as well, and additional privileges are earned from BOI.
  • Besides, TAFTA on 1 September this year,// Prime Minister Koizumi and Prime Minister Taksin // announced the agreement in principle Of Japan and Thailand Economic Partnership Agreement. The commitment of both sides on the industrial sector// will be undertaken //to promote competitiveness of the auto and part industry. For passenger car over 3,000 cc.,// the tariff will reduced 5% each year // until it reaches 60% in 2009// and will then maintained at 60%. While passenger car under 3,000 cc.// both sides will renegotiate on market access// on a date to be agreed//before signing JTEPA.
  • On the date of entry into force of the JTEPA// auto parts with tariff rate over 20% // will be gone down to 20% // and maintained until elimination in 2011. For items with tariff rates 20% and below// will keep continue before elimination in 2011// while sensitive items will be 0% in 2013. The Auto parts subjects to be eliminated according to the AFTA scheme in 2010, which is not affect the European and American Auto industry// because tariff on auto part reduces gradually. The conclusion on auto part represent // the compromise point of JTEPA
  • Both sides will eliminate tariff on almost items// from the effective date// while the others will be Eliminated, at latest, by the first day of the 11 th year. Zero tariff quota scheme will be established For hot-rolled coils and plates.
  • So why consider Thailand to expand your businesses?
  • There are many reasons that Thailand offers you great opportunity and Here are just a few. I would like to highlight numbers 3, 5, and 6 For instance, promote adding value to goods, Develop industrial system to increase capability And conduct a proactive foreign policy. however, as they deal with economic and political issues, and I know that these are major concerns for any foreign investors. In short, Thailand offers economic and political stability and welcomes those who participate in the automobile business.
  • Most Global brands have already established their Production base in Thailand, including Toyota, Honda, Isuzu, GM and Ford. Some companies, like Toyota, Honda & Isuzu Have also established R&D centers in Thailand .
  • Not only government policy endorsement and establishment of global brand in Thailand, But also the potential to expand the domestic Market. As you can notice from the slide, The potential car buyers in Thailand still represent a high portion of the population at 10 persons per unit . It is clear that consumer demand for// personalized transportation will drive sales as the ability to buy rises to match aspirations . In contrast, the US,and Japan have a low index level , reflecting higher levels of existing ownership and reduced potential for further growth.
  • Other reasons for investing in Thailand include: Political stability—Liberalization policy— Attractive government incentives. Also, Thailand offers a good, // massive infrastructure network with regard including //ample electricity, // telecommunications,// sea ports, and a new airport.
  • In addition,// we offer a large market, and, as mentioned before,// the largest Production base for pickup trucks, as well as the gateway to 500 million Asian people. We also have a rich supply of supporting industries, good access to raw materials, and inexpensive manufacturing costs.
  • We have an abundant supply of quality labor who possess language proficiency and who are friendly and hospitable. Let’s not also forget some of the other amenities such as delicious food, attractive tourist locations, and plenty of golf courses.
  • Here are some of the competitive parts components we currently manufacture.
  • Here are some more .
  • We also produce a variety of engines in Thailand.
  • Here is a list of parts components which we will have insufficient production capacity in Thailand. These include passenger car engines and transmissions, mould & die making, plastic injection mould. Hence, there are good opportunities to invest in Thailand.
  • This slide represents some of the parts that are currently produced in Thailand. For instance; Diesel engines, steering wheels, drum and disc brakes, suspension systems, transmissions, Electrical and electronic systems and so on.
  • With the effort of the private sector, along with favorable government support, we can see a very bright future for the auto industry in Thailand.
  • Again,// I wish to thank you all for your kind attention, and look forward to talking to you later// about the business opportunities that exist in// our great country of Thailand. Vielen vielen Dank Thank you very much.
