You may be surprised to hear just how uniquely positioned Thailand is within APAC for defense industry sourcing and investment - not only in terms of its favorable geographic location in ASEAN, but also for its advantageous regulatory environment and recent uptick in demand drivers for un-manned systems, weapons and weapons platforms, training equipment and, ammunition, and more in the defense space. Thailand has enjoyed Major non-NATO ally (MNNA) designation since 2003 as a close ally of the U.S.
