As governments and companies navigate through the new normal and ongoing transformations, The American Chamber of Commerce in Thailand (AMCHAM Thailand) offers long-term measures to support long term, sustainable economic growth in Thailand.

AMCHAM President Greg Wong stated: “The Thai Government is to be applauded for managing the immediate response to COVID-19. “U.S. companies’ represent over 50 billion USD of cumulative investment in the Kingdom and employ 200,000 Thai people, we are part of the fabric of the Thai economy. Our white paper identifies strategic areas for U.S.- Thai partnership and offers recommendations to capture opportunities created by the “New Normal” to deliver long term economic growth.”

In AMCHAM’s white paper “Better than Before- – Creating Long Term Growth in Thailand Post- Covid-19”, AMCHAM has demonstrated its support to the Thai government’s vision of being a high- income country by 2037 and suggested cooperation on key areas such as trade relations, supply chain, digital economy, small and medium enterprises, tourism, healthcare, energy and skills to accelerate U.S. investment in the region.

The paper captures suggestions for opportunities for the Thai government to improve cross border trade efficiency essential to reinstate Thailand’s position as a manufacturing powerhouse and key ASEAN logistics hub. Covid-19 has accelerated digital transformation across Thailand.

AMCHAM extends its support and expertise to the Thai government for building a safe, secure, and viable digital infrastructure essential to boost the country’s vibrant digital economy and to thrive in the future.

The paper outlines steps, policies, emerging global standards and reforms in the digital economy, cyber security, and e-commerce that the Thai government can consider for the government, enterprises, and society to invest more intensively in digital transformation.

The paper also identifies an urgent need to strengthen government-backed policies and programs for Small and Medium Enterprises to access capital in order to grow. The current pandemic has impacted Thailand’s travel and health tourism industry due to restrictions imposed on inbound travel by foreigners.
