About 35.7 per cent of 600 foreign companies with investments in Thailand will increase them this year, while the rest will maintain current investment levels, a survey by the Board of Investment has found.



About 50.9 per cent of the 600 firms surveyed by the BOI said they were pleased with the country’s supply-chain capability. 

Other reasons to continue expanding are the country’s infrastructure (50.6 per cent) and tax incentives (49.2 per cent), Bongkot Anuroj, an investment adviser at the BOI, said yesterday.
