Growing Interest for Thailand Real Estate among Japanese Investors

There are many reasons and aspects of interest growth among Japanese investors for Thailand real estate. The most vital of those reasons is the economic situations of Japan, government’s policies and its public response to the economic fluctuations. Natural disasters like earth quake, social and cultural boundaries and restrictions for Japanese youth are also the factors encouraging most of the Japanese to dwell into the land of freedom, Thailand. To explain further we must first understand the economic conditions of Japan.

Japan is the world’s third biggest economy, a noteworthy aid contributor and one of the essential wellsprings of worldwide capital and credit, with a populace of 127 million in 2015 with per capita income of US$32,486. The country is worlds fourth biggest in terms of export and import, and has the world’s largest electronics and mechanical and automobile industry.

From 2000 to 2007, the Japanese economy developed by a normal of 1.5% every year. However because of the worldwide financial crisis, the economy shrunk by 1% in 2008 and by another 5.5% in 2009. The economy came back to development in 2010 with GDP development of 4.7%. At that point Japanese development contracted once more, contracting by 0.5% in 2011 because of the effect of the Great Tohoku Earthquake (on rector scale 9.0) March 11, 2011.

The economy developed by an unassuming 1.7% in 2012 and by another 1.4% in 2013. In 2015, the economy extended by a tiny 0.5%, after a compression of 0.03% in 2014, mostly because of powerless fares and family spending, as indicated by the IMF. The Japanese economy developed by an annualized rate of 1.7% in Q1 2016, in sharp diverges from the past quarter’s 1.7% decay – maintaining a strategic distance from another specialized retreat. The economy is relied upon to develop by a pitiful 0.5% this year and to decrease by 0.06% in 2017, as per the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

This economic instability is causing turbulence in the mind set of middle class and middle income investors. They feel that their capitals are insecure if invested in Japan, which is the reason new investors and young businessmen are looking for alternative economies and for most of them Thailand is the best option in the region with its lucrative condominium real estate industry.

Thai-Japanese Government level cooperation:

This is another most encouraging aspect for Japanese Investors to come to Thailand and invest in the expanding Central Business District of the capital city Bangkok and in the infrastructural development of Thailand. In addition to this Thailand is the biggest manufacturing hub for Japanese companies in Southeast Asia.Thai and Japanese Prime Ministers

Tokyo seeking to counter China’s developing impact in Southeast Asia, Japan on Monday reaffirmed its solid financial ties with Thailand. Thailand’s Prime Minister, Gen. Prayuth Chan-ocha, said on a visit to Tokyo that he would permit Japan to deal with a noteworthy railroad venture traversing Thailand from east to west, a consoling stance for Tokyo taking after a late choice by Bangkok to permit Beijing to fabricate a noteworthy rail join associating China’s southern area to Bangkok. His Japanese counterpart said he had “productive discourses” with the Thai PM. “The financial ties between the two nations are getting to be more profound,” he said at a news meeting.

These types of government level collaborations are also proven to be very helpful in confidence building of Japanese investors in Thailand markets.
