A Thai majority owned company limited is the most common form of doing business in Thailand, but requires that the company have a Thai majority shareholder and Thai director.   However, this does not apply to foreign owned businesses engaged exclusively in the export trading business.  Thailand export trading businesses can be 100% foreign owned.  

Export trading business is the buying and selling of goods either purchased inside of Thailand or outside of Thailand for sale to customers located exclusively outside of Thailand.  There cannot be any domestic sales to customers inside of Thailand.
