Bangkok Governor Chadchart Sittipunt has revealed plans by the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (AMB) to seek government support to turn the city into a hub for multinational companies to foster economic growth.
He stated that harmonization of BMA policies with Government guidelines would improve the urban economy and job creation.
Chadchart highlighted the symbiotic relationship between urban centers and employment opportunities, underlining the important role of international companies in job creation. He further expressed his optimism that the arrival of high-quality corporations would not only enrich the job market, but also benefit various stakeholders such as rental property owners, taxi drivers, restaurateurs and farmers.
The governor outlined plans to establish a one-stop service center to help foreign investors and film production teams, citing the potential to attract more foreign revenue to the capital. He intends to discuss this proposal with the new government.

Collaboration with the Board of Investments (BOI) is also on the BMA’s agenda. As foreign investment trends are shifting from industry to services, finance, business start-ups and innovation, Bangkok’s ability to serve these sectors has become a crucial asset.
