    Die Ford Motor Co., der weltweit zweitgrößte Automobilhersteller, meldete am Mittwoch, dass sie die Truck-Produktion bei ihrem thailändischen Joint Venture, das sie mit der japanischen Mazda Motor Corp. betreibt, im nächsten Jahr deutlich steigern wird.
    Wie Ford-COO Nick Scheele mitteilte, wird AutoAlliance Thailand (AAT) seine Produktion in Rayong demnach voraussichtlich von 80.000 Lkws in diesem Jahr auf 135.000 Lkws in 2003 erhöhen.
    Vom Werk in Thailand aus, in das ursprünglich 400 Mio. Dollar investiert wurden, hat Ford bisher Trucks in mehr als 100 Länder exportiert, wodurch man in weniger als fünf Jahren mit über 1 Mrd. Dollar zur thailändischen Wirtschaft beigetragen hat.

    Ford may stop Thailand investment

    (BangkokPost.com, Agencies)

    Ford Motor Co said today in Washington that it is considering whether to scrap a planned $1 billion programme in new and upgraded factories in Thailand over the recent curbs on currency and foreign investment.

    Ford will decide where to invest the earmarked $1 billion by the end of June. China and India are possible alternative destinations.

    The vice president for international government offices for Ford, Steve Biegun, has been in Thailand for meetings, including a face-to-face discussion with Prime Minister Surayud Chulanont.

    This morning, he was quoted by the Bloomberg news agency on his concern over the restrictions.

    "These things make it extremely difficult to do business in a globally competitive environment," he said. "What we need in our business is predictability."

    The same agency quoted Kim Eng Tan, an analyst at Standard & Poor's in Singapore, who expressed pessimism over the recent moves by the central bank and the government.

    "Thailand's potential for economic growth and investment liberalization has definitely taken a knocking," he told Bloomberg. "We are seeing an increase in policy risk that may deter investors."

    Ford is among Thailand's top 20 foreign companies, and the No 5 automaker by sales. Its total investment so far is about $1 billion.
    It is reviewing plans to build a new plant with capacity for 150,000 cars, and to extend existing output by an additional 24,000 vehicles at a 176,000- unit factory it operates with Mazda Motor Corp at Rayong.

    The Sept 19 coup and subsequent measures "have generated a sense of turmoil," Mr Biegun said. "We came to discuss with government very specifically the policies surrounding the auto industry and what should be the expectations of a potential investor."

    Ford wants to make sure that Thailand will remain "a stable place to do business."

    "So far the government is moving in a direction that could keep things together, but they have a monumental task ahead of them," said Mr Biegun.

    Vielleicht wird das die Militärregierung ja langsam zu einem Umdenken bewegen.

    Ford May Scrap Up to $1 Billion of New Thailand Investments

    By Margo Towie

    Jan. 31 (Bloomberg) -- Ford Motor Co., the world's third- largest carmaker, may scrap as much as $1 billion of planned investment in Thai factories after the nation's military-backed government imposed currency and foreign-investment curbs.

    ``These things make it extremely difficult to do business in a globally competitive environment,'' Steve Biegun, Ford's Washington-based vice president for international government affairs, said yesterday in an interview in Bangkok, where he met leaders including the Prime Minister. ``What we need in our business is predictability.''

    Thailand's military seized control in September and installed a government that imposed currency controls and new foreign-ownership laws, shaking investor confidence. A group representing Pfizer Inc. and other drug companies last week said members may cut spending after the Thai government pledged to force them to surrender patents so it can make cheaper medicines.

    ``Thailand's potential for economic growth and investment liberalization has definitely taken a knocking,'' said Kim Eng Tan, an analyst at Standard & Poor's in Singapore. ``We are seeing an increase in policy risk that may deter investors.''

    [highlight=yellow:6a11a59b06]S&P last week kept the outlook on Thailand's BBB+ rating stable, which means it's inclined to leave the ranking unchanged. The rating is the third-lowest investment grade. [/highlight:6a11a59b06]
    Top 20 Investors

    Ford, among Thailand's top 20 foreign companies with about $1 billion already invested, is reviewing plans to build a new plant in the nation with capacity for 150,000 cars and extend existing output by an additional 24,000 vehicles at a 176,000- unit factory it operates with Mazda Motor Corp.

    The coup and the measures taken by the government ``have generated a sense of turmoil,'' Biegun said. ``We came to discuss with government very specifically the policies surrounding the auto industry and what should be the expectations of a potential investor.''

    Ford will decide where to invest the earmarked $1 billion in ``the first half of this year,'' Biegun said, citing China and India as alternative investment destinations. Ford wants to make sure that Thailand will remain ``a stable place to do business.''

    ``So far the government is moving in a direction that could keep things together, but they have a monumental task ahead of them,'' said Biegun. Dearborn, Michigan-based Ford, which ranks No. 5 in Thailand in sales, last week reported a record $12.75 billion full-year loss.

    Generic Drugs

    The Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers' Association, which has representatives of Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline Plc and Novartis AG on the board, said it will assess proposed laws after the Thai health ministry said it planned to force companies to relinquish patents for heart and HIV drugs to cut drug costs because of Thailand's ``limited budget.''


    ``Forcefully taking property rights simply because of a ministry's budget shortfalls is internationally unprecedented,'' Teera Chakajnarodom, president of the trade group said yesterday. ``We have no objections to generics -- but don't take patented products and allow other companies to copy them.''

    ``There is a misunderstanding that this government is protectionist and doesn't want foreign investment,'' Thailand's Finance Minister Pridiyathorn Devakula said today. ``I want to repeat again that all the measures are to help domestic businesses be able to compete.''

    Thailand's central bank triggered a slump in stocks, bonds and the currency in December when it required local banks to withhold 30 percent of new foreign funds and penalized investments of less than a year. The controls aimed to slow gains in the baht after the currency's 16 percent increase last year undermined exports.

    Foreign Loans

    The rule was abandoned for equity funds a day later, after the stock market sank the most in 16 years. It remains in place for bonds and real-estate mutual funds. The bank yesterday wound the rules back further, exempting some hedged foreign loans and fund transfers.

    ``The measures that they've taken are going to result in foreign direct investment outflows, not inflows, in 2007,'' said Tim Condon, an economist at ING Bank NV in Singapore. ``The government seems to be trying to sort out the regulatory framework and the outcome is one that looks investor unfriendly.''

    Total foreign investment in Thailand last year dropped 18 percent from 2005, according to Board of Investment data. Investment fell amid a political standoff that ended in the coup ousting the government of Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra.

    Ford's vehicle sales rose by more than 80 percent in both China and India last year. Ford has invested more than $1.5 billion in China since 2001 and more than $500 million in India since 2005. In Thailand sales fell 18 percent last year.
    Consumer confidence in Southeast Asia's second-largest economy fell to a five-month low after Dec. 31 bomb blasts killed three. Prime Minister Surayud Chulanont, a retired army chief installed by coup leaders, blamed them on ``people who lost their political power'' following the military coup.

    [highlight=yellow:6a11a59b06]``One government can give you what you need to develop a successful business plan,'' said Biegun. ``Another coup, another government and you could lose it all.'' [/highlight:6a11a59b06]

    es wird allerdings aucch deutlich,
    welche Folgen eine Spannung zwischen Thailand und Singapore haben kann,
    die nationalisiert an die Bevölkerung weitergegeben wird.

    Bloombergs SEA Analysten in Singapur sind da wahrscheinlich ebensowenig wertfrei,
    wie so manche Rating-Agentur.

    hier jetzt endgültig der Ford- Daumen für den Th- Standort nach unten, es ist aus:

    http://www.nationmultimedia.com/2007...s_30025827.php


    die Regierung sieht sich immer noch nicht als Auslöser für diese (weitere) Schlappe, lt. Artikel in THE NATION ist man "verwundert"...

    Commerce Minister Krirk-krai Jirapaet on Thursday said that he was perplexed. "But it's up to their decision. They might have other information to consider," he said.

    Re: Ford in Rayong.

    Hatte x ne mündliche Zusage von einer Personal Cheffin in Rayong, das ich sofort dort hätte Anfangen können. Ist so 3 - 4 Jahre her. Tat ich aber nicht weil es nur zu Thai kondizionen gewesen wäre.
    Puh, Glück gehabt!?
    Dafür habe ich mich dann in China beworben, diesx aber als Montage Arbeiter (von Deutschland aus), da wurde ich aber leider(noch) nicht genommen.
    Thailand ist eigentlich gar kein Thema mehr, hier bei uns (Werkzeugbau in Köln). China, Indien und Brasilien werden dafür aber wöchentlich genannt.

    die hätten auch "im Dezember" schreiben können, es ändert nichts am Inhalt der diplomatisch-interkulturellen Standardformulierung gerade im Kontakt mit asiatischen Staaten "es ist aus". Hier wird eben eher implizit- kaschiert kommuniziert, anders als in Europa oft "schwarz kann nur schwarz sein u. weiss ist es erst dann wenn ich es sehe..."

    mainzwegen können wir uns ja Ende April noch mal zum AUS schreiben

    Ich dachte, amerikanische Firmen wären gar nicht von den Veränderungen betroffen, weil aufgrund dieses Vertrages denen besondere Rechte einräumt werden, u.a. auch Mehrheitsbeteiligungen?
