THAILAND BOARD OF INVESTMENT'S CLUSTER POLICY aims to link manufacturers, suppliers, supporting industries, research and academic institutions along with public and private organizations in cluster areas. The 5 targeted Cluster Robotics for Industrial Operational Clusters, Logistics and the Aviation Industry, Medical Industry, Bio-energy and Biochemical Clusters will join with Digital-based Cluster operations.

Strategic development is supported by the BOI and government agencies in a wide-range of areas, including human resource technology, infrastructure development and logistics systems. Also included will be tax and non-tax incentives including an 8 year corporate income tax exception and an additional 5 year 50% reduction and granting of Permanent Residence status to leading specialists. Also foreigners will be permitted to own land in order to promote their operations. Financial support, import duty exemption on machinery and amendment of rules and regulations will also aid investors.


BOI's policy expects to attract foreign direct investment and further investment especially from Japanese business. The policy will also help to boost production and provide needed industrial parts in the Clusters mentioned above. SUBCON Thailand will play an important role in linking industrial Part-Buyers and entrepreneurs from domestic and international companies.

Exhibitor's Voice

Buyer's Voice

"We have been exhibiting at SUBCON Thailand since the show's first edition and we plan to keep exhibiting every year. The show gives us the opportunity to meet and present our rubber products and capabilities to procurement officers from large corporations, many of whom have been invited by the Thailand Board of Investment. Like us they also take part in the successful Business Matching Program. Exhibiting companies are mostly in the Automotive and Electronics industry but at SUBCON's last edition, we were also able to present our rubber products to buyers in the Medical Parts and Equipment Industry as well as rubber products for Traffic Control System." "I can confirm that SUBCON Thailand is the largest Industrial Subcontracting and Business Matching Event in the region. Our company was invited by the Thailand Board of Investment to participate in SUBCON's Business Matching program. I was impressed with the quality of exhibiting part makers and the companies that I met during the program. Many initial discussions were made at the show and strong business contracts established."
