Entrepreneurship policies in Thailand: focus, direction, and critical success factors

By Thanaphol Virasa


Entrepreneurship-oriented policies are beginning to appear in economic policy statements in many countries as highlighted in Stevenson and Lundstorm (2001). That said, very little research has been done to examine what governments are actually doing to move towards an entrepreneurship policy perspective and how this is being carried out. This current study attempts to examine entrepreneurship policies and practices in Thailand by using international benchmarking study and GEM Thailand 2002 and 2005 studies. The primary data is gathered from face-to-face interviews with government officials about their entrepreneurship policies and practices. The data collection includes an examination of government economic and social policy documents, SME/entrepreneurship programs, and policy or program evaluation results
