Four Thai companies have been recognised by industry experts as 2013 global challengers out of 100 companies worldwide. These companies are nominated based on their country’s rapidly developing economy that is both growing and globalising quickly. The four Thai challengers include Charoen Pokphand Group, Indorama ventures, PTT and Thai Union Frozen Products.

The companies have been selected because they have accomplished to add 1.4 million jobs to the Thai economy and they purchased more than $1.7 trillion of goods and services and invested more than $330 billion in capital expenditures.
