Thailand call forwarding redirects calls from Thailand anywhere in the world. With your business growing by the day, it may become essential to have an international presence in Thailand, which has indeed been a notable commercial hub of Southeast Asia for the last few years. This “international presence” however, may not require your physical presence in the country.
Yet, you will have a local or toll free Thai number that gives callers the impression that you have an establishment there. Thailand call forwarding ensures that. What’s more, Thailand call forwarding allows your business associates to connect with you at local call rates. Moreover, holders of local flat-rate plans even get to call you for free.
You can receive your calls on landline, mobile or VoIP in any country in the world.
Overview of the Thai Economy
Thailand falls under the category of newly industrialized countries. Its economy depends heavily on exports, which account for more than 66% of its GDP or gross domestic product. The Thai economy has been growing at an average of 3.8–4.3 % over the last few years.
The principal contributors to Thailand’s GDP are its service and industrial sectors. Industry accounts for nearly 39.2 % of the GDP. The country’s agricultural sector dominates 8.4 % of the GDP while trade and logistics & communication contribute 13.4 and 9.8 %, respectively to the GDP. The following is the breakup of the other GDP contributors:
- Mining & construction sector – 4.3 %
- Service Sectors (finance, education, hotels & restaurants) – 24.9%
Trade and telecommunications are the fastest emerging sectors to enhance Thailand’s economic competitiveness. Thailand is Southeast Asia’s 2nd largest economy after Indonesia. Thailand’s income per capita ranks 4th in Southeast Asia. It ranks 2nd in external trade in Southeast Asia, after Singapore.
In fact, the World Bank has acknowledged Thailand as “one of the greatest development success stories.” The country’s unemployment rate also is low. This is because a large part of the population is engaged in subsistence agriculture or self-employed in the tourism industry for which Thailand is world famous.
