Issaree Suwunnavid on Doing Business in Thailand
In East Asia and the Pacific, Thailand is ranked the third easy place to do business, behind Singapore and Hong Kong.
The World Bank’s “Doing Business 2012″ report released yesterday, put Singapore at the top as the country where it is easiest to do business and as having the most conducive regulatory environment for the starting and operation of a local firm.

In 10 areas of business regulation, Thailand’s ranking stays high mainly because of the ease in getting electricity (9), but its ranking is the lowest (78) in the area of starting a business.
Getting electricity is a new index added this year.
“Throughout the past eight years, Thailand’s ranking was 20th. The higher ranking demonstrates Thailand’s continued efforts in improving the regulatory environment to ease business doing,” said Annette Dixon, World Bank country director.
World Bank country economist Kirida Bhaopichitr added that a one-stop service centre, established recently to facilitate access to licences, contributed greatly to the improvement.
A key finding of the report is that in the East Asia-Pacific region, China has shown the biggest improvement in six years.
It also shows that access to licensing data facilitates businesses. Two-thirds of the countries in the region have improved their dissemination of public information, thanks to improvements in information technology. Globally, Morocco improved its business regulation the most, climbing 21 places to 94, by simplifying the construction-permit process, easing the administrative burden of tax compliance, and providing greater protection to minority shareholders. Since 2005, Morocco has implemented 15 business regulatory reforms.
While Thailand is likely to see a mild economic downturn over the next six months, the general outlook remains strong long term.
Ford, GM, Toyota and many other International manufacturers have made Thailand there main production base in Asia.
Thailand is logistically well place to manage Asian operations and has favorable investment laws.
The reports that Thai economy would encounter such risk factors as a drop in private consumption and investment, as well as a slowdown in exports and tourism-related businesses are a little excessive, any slow down will be mild will still see Thailand growing.
Most of the of 30 established analytical and economic research units across Thailand foresaw at a recent survey, conducted by Bangkok University’s Research Centre, according to Thai News Agency on Monday.
63 leading economists economists in a recent survey, conducted by Bangkok University’s Research Centre said the Thai economy is then likely to be spurred by improved internal factors, including private consumption and investment, as well as the government’s increased spending and investment, in the wake of the six-month downturn, although external risk factors related to prospect of Thai exports and tourism are envisaged to prevail.
