The projects seeking BOI promotions include: 44 projects for renewable energy; 26 projects for science, technology and innovations; 15 projects for agro industry; and aircraft spare parts industry.Acting BOI secretary-general Mrs Hirunya Sujinai said that the BOI had attached importance to investments which are useful and add value to the local products.

The number of applications for BOI privileges and amounts of investments are of secondary importance, she added.

For the whole year last year 2014,  3,469 investment projects worth 2.1 trillion baht applied for promotional privileges from the BoI which she described as the highest in term of investment value in 50 years.

The number of projects seeking promotional privileges and their value for last year represent an increase of 73 percent and 117 percent respectively compared to a year earlier.

Mrs Hirunya attributed the high number of projects to investors’ desire to invest in Thailand.
