Thailand plans entertainment estate

Reading Time: 1 minute
Thailand has a booming entertainment industry and boasts a growing potential for not only talented performers, but also for investors

Thailand is looking into the feasibility of opening a designated business zone for the entertainment and creative industry, said Verapong Chaiperm, governor of the Industrial Estate Authority of Thailand (IEAT), according to a report by the Bangkok Post.

The estate would be dedicated to value-adding ventures in “various entertainment sectors” and include activities related to movie making, he added. Possible locations could be Phetchaburi or the Map Ta Phut Industrial Estate in Rayong, southern Thailand.

Creative industries and the entertainment sector are fields in which Thailand is putting a lot of emphasis trying to lure international investors into the business. Thailand’s entertainment industry has contributed more than 300 billion baht, or $8.6 billion, in revenue to the economy last year and is likely to enjoy continued dynamic growth.

The industry comprises music, television, film, animation and digital content, including pre and post production facilities, and has become respected worldwide because of its high quality and proven track record. Thailand’s largest entertainment company is GMM Grammy, claiming 70 per cent share of the country’s entertainment market, which represents a number of well-known artists.
