THAILAND is offering a raft of tax and other incentives for companies setting up Interna- tional Headquarters to service their subsidiaries in the region and beyond . . . 

UNDER a new strategic plan developed by its military government, Thailand hopes to evolve from a manufacturing/assembling base for Southeast Asia to a “trading” nation.

In so doing, it is seeking to capitalise on its central location in so-called ‘continental’ ASEAN to service its less-developed neigh- bours — Vietnam, Burma, Laos and Cambodia.
