FC ASIA LTD is incorporated in Hong Kong and headquartered in Bangkok, and aims to serve the ASEAN region and in particular the Greater Mekong Sub-region: Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Lao PDR, Vietnam.

We believe that the strong performance of the ASEAN economies, fueled by a large, young and industrious population of over 600 million people will be the main growth driver of the world economy for at least the next decade.

The availability of low cost and skilled labor has attracted several large industrial conglomerates principally from Japan and Korea to set up local production facilities in Emerging Asia. Additionally, investors from Japan, Korea, China, Hong Kong and Singapore have identified the massive potential for the consumer led growth in those economies.

Thailand’s economy grew at an average annual rate of 7.5 percent in the boom years of 1960 to 1996 and 5 percent following the Asian crisis during 1999-2005. Today, it has a well-developed infrastructure, a free-enterprise economy, and pro-investment policies. The key drivers of growth remain tourism, private consumption and public investments.

The most important pro-investment project is the Eastern Economic Corridor, consisting of the three Eastern provinces Rayong, Chonburi, and Chachoengsao with a combined area of 13,285 square kilometers. The Eastern Economic Corridor will see investments of US$ 43 billion during the next five years, mostly through foreign direct investments.

With it, the Thai government intends to boost investment in 10 targeted industries: next-generation cars, smart electronics, affluent medical and wellness tourism, agriculture and biotechnology, food, robotics for industry, logistics and aviation, biofuels and biochemical, digital and medical services.
Thailand welcomes high-tech industry companies willing to established in this corridor.

 
 
 


 
 

Lao PDR was ranked among the ten fastest growing economies in 2015 and 2016 with 7.4 and 7.0% GDP growth, and is expected to continue its path with 6.9 and 7.0% in 2017 and 2018.

Growth feeds from all sectors of the economy. The services sector is responsible for most of the growth with a push in tourism revenues, wholesale & retail and telecommunications; industry thrives from generation and exports from electricity power plants; and agriculture improved due to improved rice, livestock and fishery production.

Investment projects in the construction of the railway linking Vientiane with the Chinese province of Yunnan and other commitments to build power plants, residential developments and transport infrastructure to boost tourism will lead investment opportunities.

As an ASEAN member, Lao PDR is increasing its integration into the regional and global economy and welcomes foreign investments to improve the financial sector, basic infrastructure and education.
