Oxford Business Group and Tilleke & Gibbins Seal Third Partnership for 2012 Publication

Oxford Business Group

Oxford Business Group (OBG), the global publishing, research and consultancy company, has renewed its partnership with Tilleke & Gibbins for its latest report on Thailand’s economy.

As part of the collaboration, which marks OBG’s third year of partnership with the law firm, Tilleke & Gibbins will work with the Group’s editorial and research team to produce the legal section of The Report: Thailand 2012.

OBG’s new report, produced in partnership with the Board of Investment (BOI) will put the country’s economic development in the spotlight, providing comprehensive coverage of Thailand’s efforts to boost exports and tap investors through tailored programmes and industrial expansion. It will also include a detailed, sector-by-sector guide for foreign investors, alongside a wide range of interviews with the most prominent political, economic, and business leaders.

Tilleke & Gibbins is a major regional law firm with offices in Bangkok, Hanoi, and Ho Chi Minh City. Its team of more than 100 lawyers provides services across all key legal areas, including corporate and commercial law, intellectual property, and litigation.

OBG’s Country Director Anné Schlagel said she welcomed the contribution that Tilleke & Gibbins would make to the Group’s new report by mapping out the legal changes which were being triggered by Thailand’s progress in diversifying its economy.

“Thailand’s bid to build on its reputation as a choice destination for investors has led to key legislative amendments, such as changes to property and labor laws, together with the introduction of additional tax incentives,” she said. “Tilleke & Gibbins’ team works closely with leading multinational corporations that are spearheading the economic expansion in the country. I am delighted that we will once again benefit from their in-depth understanding of both the law and Thailand’s business climate as we begin the research process for our third country report.”

The Co-Managing Partner and Director of Dispute Resolution at Tilleke & Gibbins Tiziana Sucharitkul said OBG’s reports had carved out an important role on the global business platform by providing investors with the latest opportunities that Thailand’s bid to drive growth was producing.

“Oxford Business Group’s reports on Thailand have served as an invaluable primer for foreign investors by highlighting the country’s economic and legal developments,” she said. “Tilleke & Gibbins is proud of its longstanding partnership with Oxford Business Group, which is known to be a market leader on emerging economies, and we look forward to contributing the legal section of The Report: Thailand 2012.”

The Report: Thailand 2012 will be a vital guide to the many facets of the country, including its macroeconomics, infrastructure, banking and other sectoral developments. It will be available in print or online.
