A new office on trade and business development in Hua Hin has opened to facilitate the registration of the increasing number of various trades and businesses.
The Deputy Commerce Minister Mr. Alongkorn Pollabutr informed that Hua Hin and other areas in Prachuab Khirikhan are now enjoying different investments, namely: real estate, hotels, factories and so on. In 2007, the provincial office on business registration in Prachuab Khirikhan registered 4,274 businesses which accounted for the total of 46,000 million baht investment fund. In 2010, more 384 Thai and foreign businesses were registered, thus suggesting the overall growth of the province’s economic status to 60% within 3 years.
As a result, to accommodate business owners and investors in Hua Hin, an additional office on trade and business development in Prachuab Khirikhan is open in the city center. Located of the Index Living Mall on Petchkasem road heading North, just outside Hua Hin, this office provides assistance on business registration, issuing official documents and letters of recommendation, cancellation of business and submitting budget and financial reports.
According to the Deputy Minister of Commerce, the Department of Business and Trade Development is the backbone of Thailand’s economics. Recently awarded the first prize on national economic development, the Department has 82 branches all over the country so that Thai and foreign entrepreneurs can legalize their business conveniently. The reason why Hua Hin is growing fast in terms of business fairs is because it is the most popular tourist destination in Thailand and is ideal for small and medium businesses. Moreover, the opening of the Singkhon Checkpoint this year will promote more business registrations .
Apart from Hua Hin, the office on trade and business development is available in Pattaya, Mae Sod and Koh Samui, also famous tourist destinations of Thailand.
