Looking beyond Bangkok
Thailand is one of the world's emerging countries. It enjoys constant growth despite an unstable political situation and is the second-largest economy of Southeast Asia (the fourth-largest economy in terms of per-capita GNP).
To maintain growth while reducing social inequalities, the country has chosen to invest in infastructure, innovation, health, education and the preservation of the environment. And the government is implementing significant regulatory reforms.
AFD has been present in the country since 2004. It is focusing its action on two fields: management of global public goods (climate and biodiversity) and responsible governance.
