ABSTRACT
This article informs that FDI into Thailand increased in 2003 to U.S.$1.8bn, compared with just $1.1bn in 2002. Foreign investors are attracted by the country's low labour costs and flexible workforce. However, Thailand will struggle to attract FDI in the face of competition from China, which in the past few years has been the recipient of investment that would otherwise have gone to countries such as Thailand. The poor protection of intellectual property in Thailand is also delaying the implementation of a free-trade agreement with the U.S., which itself has the potential to significantly boost the amount of FDI into Thailand.
