This article presents information about foreign direct investment in Thailand. Over the past few years, flows of foreign direct investment (FDI) into Thailand have recorded a sustained slowdown. Inflows of FDI into the country peaked in 1998 when they reached US$7.49bn, but there has been a steady decline since then, with total FDI falling to US$6.09bn in 1999, US$3.35bn in 2000 and US$1.07bn in 2002. Thailand now receives less FDI than a number of its Asian neighbors, including Malaysia, South Korea and even Vietnam.
