Industrial Cities in Thailand

Since the mid-1980s, Thailand has seen constant growth of Foreign Direct Investment, with exports of goods and services contributing to 70 percent of the country’s GDP in 2011. Thailand has been one of the world’s fastest growing economies and one of the most successful developing countries. 

This is primarily due to infrastructure development along the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC), a revival of the 1980s Eastern Seaboard Development Plan (ESDP). This was one of the largest infrastructure development projects in Thailand, intended to provide a foundation for the country’s industrialization. ESDP transformed the Eastern coastline into an industrial hub of a new export-oriented economy, exploiting the strong natural logistical element provided by the Gulf of Thailand linking the Kingdom to the rest of Asia.

The EEC covers Chonburi, Rayong, and Chachoengsao provinces. It builds on the same concept of logistical connectivity, linking three major airports with the seaports and major cities of these provinces with Thailand’s capital through an improved road network and dual-track and high-speed rail lines.

The company has established its own policies to achieve sustainability. Amata is transforming to a leading Smart City that is self-reliant, energy efficient with renewable energy sources and sustainable environmental management. It will become the preferred place for investment in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) and for EEC targeted industries and effectively respond to global trends and emerging opportunities.

As both Amata City Chonburi and Amata City Rayong are located in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) area, your business may qualify for additional incentives.
