  Leading international companies confirm their strong support for investing in Thailand.  
The Dow Chemical Company


"The Dow Chemical Company has been in Thailand for over 40 years. Together with our partner, the Siam Cement Group, we have grown in Thailand with the encouragement of the Board of Investment.

"Today we are undertaking many growth projects in Thailand, including a US$3 billion investment in the best technology we have available in the world as well as the best environmental health and safety practices.

"We see nothing but growth in our projects and our ability to sell great products to help the economy grow."

Andrew Liveris
President and Chief Executive Officer

Ford Motor Company


"This investment underscores our long-term commitment to Thailand, and its role as a global production and export hub for Ford. The decision to build our new plant was supported by Thailand's world-class automotive industry and logistics and export infrastructure."

"The auto industry is growing rapidly in Asia, everywhere from China to India to Thailand and markets all around ASEAN. Even during the global economic downturn, the Asia-Pacific auto market grew, and currently we are seeing a 15% increase from last year. That is one of the major reasons we need this new facility in Thailand for additional capacity."

Group Vice President and
President of Ford Asia Pacific and Africa
