Webinar: Unlocking Opportunities in Southeast Asia: Indonesia and Thailand

Located in the heart of the APAC region and party to numerous trade agreements, it should be no surprise that Thailand and Indonesia have grown into the two largest economies in Southeast Asia. Companies looking to expand within the region would do well to choose these two emerging markets, with their strong exports, modern infrastructure, and skilled and diversified workforces.

In recent years, both countries have made efforts to attract foreign direct investment and increase the ease of doing business. Thailand achieved 21st place in the World Bank Group’s 2020 Doing Business Report, while Indonesia prepares to rise in the ranks with the enactment of the Omnibus Law.

In this webinar, Vistra and MPG will provide an overview of relevant FDI incentives and recent regulatory developments in Thailand and Indonesia. Topics include the Omnibus Law, the current business landscape, and the future trajectory of these two markets.
