Business Development Department to upgrade condo business standards
Thailand’s Business Development Department is preparing
a project to upgrade customer service standards to international level in
housing developments, condominiums and apartments.
Pongpun Gearaviriyapun, department director-general, said the agency is
discussing with the Thai Condominium Association and Housing Business
Association to upgrade the customer service standard in the future as well
as to improve the standard of asset management in Thailand for customers’
utmost benefit as in the US, Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore.
The move is to prevent high competition in such businesses from overseas
after the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) takes effect next year.
Property management businesses in Hong Kong, China and the Philippines have
expanded to ASEAN countries, she said, and if Thai entrepreneurs do not
improve their business lines, foreign entrepreneurs might find loopholes and
enter the market here.
Ms Pongpun said that the ongoing political problems in general have not
affected the property business, but her department will closely monitor the
situation and assist entrepreneurs impacted by the political confusion.
