INVESTMENT IN THAILAND: HOW TO PREPARE A PROJECT

INVESTMENT IN THAILAND: HOW TO PREPARE A PROJECT

It is not every year that a company plans foreign investments, and the best “blueprints” cannot be adopted for a new project without risk. Planning the organization of a project carefully is decisive not only for the smooth running of the project. A lack of preparation inevitably leads to expensive, subsequent adjustments and delays in the start of your production in Thailand and thus the return on investment.
The Sanet Group in Bangkok has been supporting foreign investments in Thailand for around 20 years, not seldom from the initial workshop and strategy finding to the start of production.

Thereby, it has proven itself time and again that the management pays full attention to the following planning principles:
• Proactive communication of the project with stakeholders
• The proper composition of the project team
• Agreed project and reporting rules
• Selecting and involving of external support

Our expert opinion deals with these key criteria.

Case Study: Troublesome Joint Venture in Thailand

Case Study: Troublesome Joint Venture in Thailand

As a consultant and “cultural ambassador”, Sanet helps a German machine builder with its Joint Venture in Thailand.

The German machine manufacturer held 75% of a sales and service Joint Venture in Thailand. A Thai partner owned 25% of the shares and managed the business single-handedly and largely without any direct intervention by the German majority partner. Little attention was paid to the Thai subsidiary.

The earnings were okay, but the sales figures were not impressive enough to make the Thai company the focus of the group management. After the company was established in Thailand, the German Controller came once a year for the annual accounts and soon returned home without any major problems. Market shares, market policy and the local company management were largely unaware of the situation at headquarters.

The surprise came as soon as the Thai partner wanted to introduce a successor.

Europe and Germany in particular is losing its attractiveness as an investment location. More than 30% of SMEs are considering relocating their production abroad. But where to and how? And which arguments are there in favor of investing in Thailand? And who possesses on-site experience and a team that can help even in difficult situations?

Thailand is traditionally known as a country that has largely stayed out of major world conflicts and now boasts an ultra-modern infrastructure. Southeast Asia is considered to be the fastest growing and politically safest economic region until 2035. An investment in Thailand is safe.

A highly specialized German company in plastic materials has a global market share of 14%. But in Thailand, despite preferential prices and fair margins offered by the partner, the market share remains at only 3%. This is something the management does not want to accept any longer. They hired Sanet to investigate a possible fraud by the distributor.
