    Chutinush Taksinapinunt: Exclusive interview with Khun Teera Phutrakul, the founder of JT Financial Planners, has been the leading force in the investment management industry in Thailand for over 25 years.

    He was Executive Chairman of Finansa Asset Management from 2005 to 2010 and prior to that President & CEO of SCB Asset Management and Managing Director of Thai Capital Management.

    He also served as Chairman of the Association of Investment Management Companies, AIMC and is currently on the board of the Thai Financial Planners Association, TFPA as well as the current Chairman of the Business & Economic Committee, The American Chamber of Commerce in Thailand.

    Q : What is the biggest opportunity in Thailand?

    A : Thailand was supposed to be the “Bread Basket of Asia” but that is no longer the case. Vietnam has overtaken us in terms of rice production and they now grow more coffee than Brazil! Rice has been heavily politicized with all the wrong policies such as price support/guarantee. As a result, our farmers are forever in debt and became less productive.

    So the biggest challenges at the moment are healthcare sector and tourism. Medical Tourism in Thailand is very famous in world market especially middle-level income from American, European and Middle East region which is very huge market. We cannot compete against Korea or Taiwan on automobile parts or IT.

    Abhisit Vejjajiva on the Thai Baht and the USD

    March 21, 2011 17:18 ET


    Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva spoke on Monday Evening at The Foreign Correspondents Club of Thailand (FCCT).

    After his keynote speech in which he outlined the Government’s achievements in Education, Economic Growth and stabilizing rural income, Abhisit Vejjajiva took some Q&A.

    During the Q&A I was fortunate enough to ask the Prime Minister about the Thai Baht.

    I have estimated that by 2015 the Thai Baht will be at a rate of 23 to 1 USD.

    Thai Food Companies are looking cheap, especially the exporters.

    Thai Food exports in 2011 will grow by about 6.5 per cent totaling 855 billion baht 28.5 billion USD, Pornsilp Patcharintanakul, Chairman of the agricultural and food businesses committee under the Board of Trade said.

    Food exports in the second quarter of the year are projected to grow by 2.6 per cent with the value totaling 211 billion baht, thanks to the increasing overseas and domestic orders, he said.

    Mr Pornsilp encouraged the Thai food industry to look for expansion of raw materials production overseas, particularly in ASEAN countries in preparation for the establishment of the Asean Economic Community in 2015.

    Mr Pornsilp attributed the substantial growth in food exports to global economic recovery, the Japan earthquake and tsunami, political unrest in the Middle East and North Africa, and natural disasters that hit countries that are major food producers and importers.
