Indonesia is the largest economy in Southeast Asia and represents more than 40% GDP of ASEAN countries. Indonesia is now there world’s fourth most populous nation with 267 million people after China, India and the US. Indonesia is also the only permanent Southeast Asia member in G-20 and the world’s 10th largest economy in regards to purchasing power parity. The country offers huge opportunities in various business sectors such as infrastructure, education, financial technology and many more.
Thailand is Southeast Asia’s second-largest economy and is ranked 27th out of 190 countries in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business index. Thailand has weathered the COVID-19 storm with only 58 deaths and is into the process of gradual recovery. With a population of 68 million, a highly developed manufacturing sector, well-developed infrastructure and pro-investment policies, Thailand continue to offer a wide range of exciting business opportunities for UK companies prepared to take a serious interest in this dynamic market.
These include education and skills development, ICT, energy, healthcare, agribusiness and food & drink, wholesale and retail, engineering, transport and infrastructure and next-generation ‘tech’ development in the Eastern Economic Corridor.
