Huawei entered the Thai market as early as two decades ago and has now provided work for 1,800 people. Huawei site in Bangkok as the Southeast Asian regional headquarters for the following reasons. Thailand has struggled to develop the e-economy in recent years and at the same time it can serve as a gateway to other emerging markets in the vicinity. Thailand's large population, consumer demand for electronic products. As a result, government-backed government support for the huge consumer market makes Thailand a perfect technology incubator.

Huawei plans to set up an open laboratory in Thailand in the second half of this year. This project aims to support small and medium-sized enterprises and make Thailand a digital economy hub. The establishment of Huawei's regional headquarters and open laboratories will stimulate other companies to expand their business and products to overseas markets.
