The media reported discussions relating to the Foreign Business Act which took place in the Thai Cabinet on 10 January 2007.

The Draft Foreign Business Bill aims to amend the definition of a Foreigner under the Foreign Business Act B.E. 2542 (1999) by including a foreigner having half or more of the total voting rights or shares of a juristic person.

We have obtained the official papers from the Cabinet office and we have an English translation which can be provided upon request.
