With a GNI per capita of $5,620 in 2015, Thailand has joined the ranks of upper-middle income countries. However, many issues still need to be addressed to achieve sustained social and economic development: making industries more competitive, measures for an aging population, and environmental problems and climate change. In addition, there are several issues common throughout the ASEAN region, such as strengthening ASEAN connectivity and narrowing the development gap.

JICA focuses on three priority areas. The first area is sustainable development of the economy and coping with a maturing society. In fiscal 2015, JICA continued its assistance for the development of a mass transit network in the Bangkok Metropolitan Area, designed to alleviate traffic congestion. An expert was dispatched to Thailand to provide advice in the overall transportation sector. Furthermore, JICA completed the construction of flood gates and rehabilitation of national roads in Ayutthaya in response to 2011 floods. The second area is coping with common issues in ASEAN countries. JICA extends a wide range of assistance, which includes extending support to the victims of human trafficking and supporting the development of human resources for addressing such issues as the tariff system and climate change. The third priority area is promoting cooperation with countries outside the ASEAN region. Behind this concept is the recognition that Thailand plays an increasingly important role as a springboard for extending assistance to other ASEAN countries and beyond. In this regard, JICA supports the acceptance of training participants from Africa and elsewhere.
