How to do the right things:
Transaction and investment support

Thailand warmly welcomes foreign investors to participate in the financing, construction, and operation of infrastructure and energy projects. Various government tenders offer regulated investment opportunities and foreign bidders have to follow strictly Thai laws and regulations for successful bids. Other, non-regulated investment opportunities require knowledge of the legal, regulatory and business environment as well as the link to local decision-makers, market players, and governmental agencies.

Beyond its legal and tax advice, the PUGNATORIUS group offers efficient transaction support services, market-entry advice and project management for foreign investments in Thailand. The local know-how to benefit from Thailand’s uniquely strategic location, its promoted and sometimes hidden industries, and its possibilities as a gateway into the heart of Asia – home to what is today the largest growing economic market.

Investment opportunities for foreign companies and developers

Foreign project developers, attracted by Thailand’s industries and people, see obvious investment opportunities in the hospitality, manufacturing, and service sector. Focal points are

  • condominium and hotel developments in Bangkok, on the Thai islands, and in coastal regions,

  • infrastructure developments in the Eastern Economic Corridor, the Thai Riviera/Royal Coast scheme and beyond, and
  • ambitious industrial projects which are promoted under the label “Thailand 4.0” or “One belt, one road”.

However, there is a much greater scope of hidden investment chances which base on Thailand’s traditional strengths and benefits: The fertile countryside, agriculture, fishery and livestock, the pronounced service orientation of the people and Thailand’s central location in Southeast Asia.
