The first five industries with the highest value of investment include the petroleum products group, followed by food, electrical appliances, car parts and plastics.

However, it is worth noting that while 92,262 workers are employed in business expansions, that’s a decrease of 5.45 percent, partly because entrepreneurs have developed their workers’ full potential and are turning to the greater use of technology to replace workers in keeping with Thailand’s 4.0 policy.

In the second half of the year, it is expected that the number of negative economic factors will be reduced.
