The Federation of Thai Industries (FTI) The Federation of Thai Industries (FTI) serves as the core organization advocating all industries in Thailand. FTI is a private sector organisation that brings together industrial leaders to promote Thailand’s economic development. The main objectives of FTI are to represent Thai manufacturers at both national and international levels, to help promote and develop industrial enterprises, to work with the government in setting up national policies, and to offer consulting services to members. FTI cooperates with the government to mobilize Thai industries to reach international markets. It acts as a “matchmaker” between foreign industrialists and Thai resources which combine the financial strength, planning ability, and persuasive power of Thailand’s industrialists.
