Four industrial estates offer major incentives for investors

Four industrial estates offer major incentives for investors

The Industrial Estate Authority of Thailand is waiving rental and maintenance fees in four industrial estates for at least one year to attract investors, its governor, Veeris Ammarapala, said on Thursday.

The fees will be waived in two industrial estates in Songkhla province, one in Sa Kaew province, and another in Phichit province, Veeris said.

Fees are being waived and land prices are being lowered to attract investment, primarily from China and Saudi Arabia, in the four industrial estates, Veeris explained, adding that the measures applied to both new and current investors.

The measures are being implemented as supply chains accelerate their shift from China to Southeast Asia and investment from Saudi Arabia in Thailand increases following an improvement in the relationship between the two countries last year.
