Prospering in a Borderless World

  • IMPORT & EXPORT PRIVILEGES FOR SMEs
  • VAT 0%
  • IMPORT DUTY 0%
  • EXCISE TAX 0%

The Asian playing field will soon be level and every player given an equal opportunity to succeed – but some will be prepared, and some won’t. While AFTAs ( Asean Free Trade Areas) was created to increase the region’s competitive advantage, businesses that fail to become more efficient and cost-effective will be left behind.

The multinationals are already in the EPZ ( Export Processing Zones ) and enjoying preferential treatment that is not available to small and medium sized enterprises. Bonded warehousing; reduced inventory and import & export costs; immediate access to the country’s major seaports and airports; and free trade zone privileges are just a few of the advantages of locating in Thailand’s EPZ.
In 2015, Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Viet Nam will become a totally free-trade area. Buyers will be able to source their goods from the most efficient producers in ASEAN, and inefficient suppliers will cease to exist.

Governments may have created AFTA to enhance the competitiveness of small and medium sized businesses, but they’re not going to do it for you – we are. MatsuriFTZ can put you in a position to succeed on this new playing field, in Thailand’s export processing zone, with all the advantages and privileges that go with it.
