Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in ASEAN’s manufacturing industry rose by 57% to $31.5 billion in 2017. In Vietnam and Thailand alone, FDI for manufacturing activities increased to 44% and 43% respectively, illustrating the region's many opportunities and high value proposition.

Both markets are poised to grow further, with its strong domestic demand due to its growing middle class, attractive operating cost, and access to regional production and export networks.

In Thailand, the government’s push for Industry 4.0 creates opportunities for businesses who can provide innovative solutions for manufacturing processes, while businesses looking to redistribute their supply chain can tap into Vietnam’s skilled workforce and strategic export network.

Hear from experts on the latest manufacturing developments in Thailand and Vietnam, including opportunities for businesses interested to expand into these markets.


Seminar Highlights: 

  1. Gain insights into Thailand's and Vietnam's manufacturing potentials
  2. Understand the key market challenges and opportunities
  3. Learn how Singapore companies successfully entered these markets
