Why did you choose Phuket for the new branch?
The growth rate of real estate in Phuket is very high, number 2 in Thailand behind Pattaya and it also has a high-end market, with higher-priced and top-level product. Phuket is similar to the Mediterranean in its environment and lifestyle. Tourist or expats stay here longer because they have purchased property with values ranging from 3 Million Baht to 1 Million US Dollars. For this reason there properties are compatible with the high-end products of Siam Micro Works. That is the reason we have opened our new branch here in Phuket.
