The policy focuses on innovation-driven sectors, or those with potential to transform with innovation. These include Bio-tech, Smart Devices, Robotics and Mechatronics, Advanced Medical Products and more. TCEB has aligned support schemes to rally to the national policy. This drive towards the future gives the Kingdom its second consecutive top ranking in 2018 as in the ‘Best Countries to Start a Business’ rankings formed by Y&R’s brand strategy firm, BAV Group, and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Holding the same global sentiment to climate change, Thailand is a champion in CSR and Sustainability.
