The Bangkok Post recently reported an MoU between Japan-based Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation (SMBC) and Thailand’s Eastern Econoric Corridor Office. Under this partnership, SMBC will help promote and facilitate investments in the Eastern Econoric Corridor (EEC) among Japanese businesses. EEC is Thailand’s new hightech industrial hub serving as the base for 12 S-curve industries which include electric vehicles, smart electronics as well as affluent, medical and wellness tourism.

In addition, the EEC Office and the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) have earlier announced the collaboration to promote Japanese investments in Thailand’s strategic areas, including Bio-Circular-Green Economy (BCG), logistics, industry supply chains and human resources development. JETRO will also be encouraging Japanese investors to invest in the Eastern Economic Corridor of Innovation (EECi), an innovation hub located at the heart of EEC in Wangchan Valley. Managed by NSTDA, EECi is expected to open for business this November.
