Thailand business endeavors enjoy a free-enterprise economy with well-developed infrastructure and generally pro-investment government policies. Aside from the 1997-98 Asian financial crisis and the more recent 2008-2009 global financial crisis, Thailand has seen relatively solid growth for several decades. Thai exports – including rice, textiles, footwear, fishery products, rubber, jewelry, cars, computers and electrical appliances – dominate the economy, accounting for more than two thirds of the nation’s GDP. Another important and growing industry is tourism. Accounting for roughly 6% of Thailand’s GDP, tourism makes a larger percentage contribution to the national economy than that of any other Asian nation.
