The Industrial Estate Authority of Thailand (I-EA-T) has devised a strategic direction and policy framework to sharpen its operational potential, based on fundamental government directives and policies. Its significance can be stated as follows:
To promote and support the provision of suitable areas, fully equipped with the necessary infrastructure for the establishment of new industrial estates; as well as to expand the supervision scope over industrial areas – as mechanisms to drive investment and decentralize prosperity to provincial areas.
To elevate high-potential industrial estates into “industrial settlements”, and accelerate infrastructure and facilities investment – in order to ensure benefits and competitiveness for entrepreneurs within these industrial settlements, as well as to be a long-term income source for I-EA-T.
To expedite the expansion of industrial estate areas
To regulate the environment according to specified standards, while taking responsibility for the safety and quality of life in surrounding communities
