International Engineering Fair

The Thai – Czech business forum

Thailand is introduced at the Engineering Fair as its "Special Guest Country" - the special guest of the fair this year. Today it has also been  presented as a land of opportunities at a Business Forum entitled "Thai-Czech partnership in Industry and Commerce." The forum was opened with speeches by Thai Ambassador to the Czech Republic Vitavas Srivihok, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Vladimir Bärtl and Director of the Foreign Relations of the Confederation of Industry Dagmar Kuchtová.

The forum mainly discussed current economic development in Thailand, investment opportunities in engineering, the possibilities of cooperation in the engineering and automotive industries as well as the promising sectors and opportunities for Czech export. Director of the Thai Council for Investments Office based in Frankfurt Ratchanee Wattanawisitport reminded that the Thai economy was the second strongest economy in Southeast Asia last year, the ninth largest car manufacturer in the world (2.5 mil. vehicles in 2013) and one of the leading manufacturers of electronic and electrical appliances. Ratchanee Wattanawisitport stated that Thailand is not only a renowned tourist destination, but is also boasts functional infrastructure (7 international airports, 6 ports for large vessels, over 70 000 km of motorways etc.) and it has a lot to offer in terms of industrial clusters. The Association for Supporting Suppliers to the Automotive and Electronics Industries was founded in 1999. Its members are mainly from the areas of industry, such as machining and forming, plastics, rubber and polymers, electronics, logistics, packaging and other services.

The Business Forum was attended by representatives of 12 Thai companies. Useful information about the possibilities of industrial cooperation and trade and investment opportunities can be obtained from the Federation of Thai Industry, the Council for Investment, the Association for Subcontractors and the Department of Support for International Trade of the Thailand Ministry of Commerce.
