            However, the 13th National Economic and Social Development Plan (2023-2027), which took effect on 1 October 2022, emphasizes the manufacturing and service sectors to contribute to sustainable value-added, the future goal of the country. These two sectors play an important part in the following industries

  1. High-value agriculture and processed agricultural products
  2. Quality and sustainable tourism
  3. Global manufacturing hub for electric vehicles
  4. High-value medical treatment and health care
  5. Investment and logistics gateway
  6. Smart digital and electronics center

            Another vital factor that will shift and develop Thailand’s industrial sector, helping it to advance even further, is the driving force of the Bio-Circular-Green economic model (BCG Economy). It was revealed to the world at the APEC 2022 meetings hosted by Thailand. This model for the future will bring more growth to the country and respond to global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
