Thailand is in the region south of China occupying the central Sino-Tibetan
Peninsular dividing the Indian Ocean and South China Sea. Previously called
Siam for hundreds of year, the country was united under the Rattanakosin
Dynasty since 1782. Under the reign of King Chularongkorn Rama V, Siam
was transformed into a modernized country, evolving to become one of the
more prominent nations of the region, free from western colonization. During
the reign of Rama VII, Siam has been politically reformed into a democratic
country with constitutional monarchy and, in 1939, renamed Thailand.
Modern Thailand has developed into one of the leading dual sectors economy of the region.

world” because it exports an enormous percentage of meat, poultry, fruits, and vegetable. On
the other hand, Thailand is also expanding its industrialized economy. Processed foods, high-
tech products, automobiles are part of the government export policies.

Invest in Thailand
Thailand has all you need for high-end gems and jewelry. It is the place where gems and diamonds are made and trade. It
is the place where jewelries are designed and produced. It is the place where artistry is part of the daily life. It is the place
where people are optimistic about life and friendly towards foreigners.
Huge community of this industry exists in Thailand and grows over time. There is enormous circulation of raw materials,
inventories, workforce, capital and transactions with the value over 4 billion US dollars (or over 160 billion baht) yearly.
Color Stones Specialist Color
For decades, the Thai know-how and technology in heat treatment
on color stones helps attract huge amount of raw materials.
Furthermore, accessibility of Thailand also helps facilitate the flows
of merchandise, suppliers, manufacturers, traders, and consumer to
the country. This makes Thailand the world producer and market
place for gems.
High quality diamond cutting center
With the capability of gems cutting, Thailand has extended its know-
how to cut and polish diamonds. This evolution has opened its door
to the world of diamond manufacturing over the past twenty years.
Artistic jewelry producer for hundreds of years, Thai people are
keen on delicacy and miniature creation. The skill of Thai workforce
is meticulous and artistic. All these reflect in the Thai arts and
lifestyle, such as sculpture, architecture, artistry and foods. To learn
more about these artisans, click here.
Tolerating workforce – the Thai values
Thais generally take a "sabai" or "relaxed" view of life, tolerating others' fault and inconsistencies. As Buddhists, they
recognize the transistorizes of life, an attitude evident in the phrase "mai pen rai", translated as "it doesn't matter" or
"no problem". Thus, Thai skilled workforce retains conscientiousness, trainability and pleasantness that are assets of
the people. Thai workers are well-known for their diligence, craftsmanship, meticulous but not demanding. Foreign
employers who have previously hired Thai manpower are satisfied with its skills and discipline.
Free Trade Agreement (FTA)
Market from Thailand
The world is becoming smaller and moving towards free-trade oriented economy. Thai government now emphasizes a
proactive role in the international trade and economic arena. It heads the region on this issue by pushing for the Free-
Trade Agreement (FTA) in a multidimensional level:
• A. Multilateral level in the WTO
• B. Bilateral level in the international relations
• C. Regional level in the economic community
Such role helps creating Thailand one of the most accessible free-trade ports of the region.
Gateway to a gigantic market place
Thailand is strategically located in the heart of East, Southeast and South-Central Asia. The economy of this region is
currently the world most productive and emerging. With over 1,500 million people in East Asia, 500 million people in
Southeast Asia, and 1,500 million people in South-Central Asia, the region is also a gigantic consuming market for all
kind of products. For instance, to explore the high-end gold market, a simple mathematical 5% potential prospect of
3.5 billion people is already 175 million people huge direct target group.
Intelligent marketing strategies
Successful marketing requires additional factors – right products at the right price, right place, right time, and right
message. Thailand has all you need:
• High quality products through skilled labor
• Competitive cost, therefore, inexpensive price
• Regional distribution hub with high accessibility and efficient outlet
• Communicative promotion campaign at lowest cost
Huge target group and right marketing strategies are insufficient. Good relationship and good „connection‟ also play an
important part in marketing success. Thailand is a multicultural country with zero-racism. Despite different religion and
culture, Thais are warmly welcome by all countries of the region. This is because over 50% of Thai people are mixed
Chinese or Indian whom are strongly bonded and connected with mainland Chinese and Indian business people and

Stay in Thailand
One of Thailand's chief attractions for the visitor is its rich culture, evident in its art, its spiritual attainments, and its
enduring social values. Thais have used the wealth their land produced to create stunning art, architecture, and
dance/drama. The range of its artistic production is not limited to architecture of palaces or temples but extends into
arts and crafts.
TAT Chairman Mr. Somsak recently said, "Thailand is becoming increasingly popular as a place for long-stay visitors
because of its good weather, inexpensive cost of living, high quality of medical services and recreational facilities."
The World Tourism Organization predicts Thailand has the potential to attract 32 million visitors by 2020. The average
length of stay is about 8 days over the past 10 years. This fact illustrates that Thailand is the ideal place for longer stay.
Thailand is often called the "land of smiles", and rightly so because you will see more smiling people here than
anywhere else in the world. Most Thais are not only friendly, polite and tolerant; they are also remarkably kind and
patient. Adhered to the famous Thai smiles, there is a special word 'Sanook', used to express a sense of pleasure while
souls having a fine time or enjoy being in good mood. 'Mai Pen Rai' means "never mind, it doesn't matter", it's another
popular expression visitors will often hear, and one which serves well to illustrate the apparent ambivalence of the Thai
Visitors are highly esteeming the pleasing and often smiling hospitality of Thai people that normally behave toward
foreigners like as saying: "Don't be a stranger in Thailand" Indeed, their smiling faces make it very easy to establish
Thailand is also well-known for medical treatment. Thailand has more than 450 private hospitals staffed by doctors and
