The Kingdom of Thailand, as it is officially known, is one of the most exotic places in the world, which explains why tourism is one of its largest industries. But Thailand is making considerable investments in other segments, making it one of the more diversified and stable economies in the Asia-Pacific region. With Thailand ITFS numbers, or international toll free service numbers, your company can access a population with one of the lowest unemployment rates in the world, at 0.9 percent (2016 est.).
Tourism and the Economy of Thailand
The Thai economy is composed of 8.9 percent agriculture, 35.9 percent industry, and 55.3 percent services. As far as industries, tourism heads the list, followed by other segments such as textiles and garments, jewelry, computer parts and electrical appliances, as well as automobile and automated parts. But more than half of the economy is based on services, which goes hand-in-hand with the booming tourist industry and the millions of Thais that depend on the segment.
The economy as a whole is going to be growing at 3.2 percent in 2017, which is slightly better than the 2.7 percent global average the World Bank has projected. But when it comes to the tourism sector, Thailand ranks as one of the top countries in the world with almost 30M visitors annually. These visitors employ more than 6.2 million people directly and in directly in the country. And according to the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), the industry earned $71.4 billion in 2016. The agency is also bullish for 2017, forecasting a 7 billion increase for foreign and domestic tourism.
With so many visitors in the country from many different parts of the world every year, Thailand ITFS numbers can make your business accessible to a demographic with a lot of disposable income.
The Impact of King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s Death on Tourism and the Economy
When King Bhumibol Adulyadej died this past year after 70 years as head of state, no one was sure what the impact would be. After all, King Rhama IX was responsible for modernizing Thailand, and he was seen as a stabilizing figure in a country that has seen multiple coups and political turmoil. But even though Thailand is still under military rule following the coup in 2014, and there was an attack at a popular tourist destination, things are better than expected as the country observes a year of morning.
