Influence of industrial location on the national land structure of Third World Countries
- Case Study of Thailand -



In this study, the main factors that lead to the excessive gravitation of population towards Mega-cities in many third world countries are examined in the point of industrial location that urged high economic growth of Asian countries in recent years. In the case of Thailand, growth in the late 1980's was principally achieved by industrial location including foreign companies, and regardless of the national plans that were established by the Thai Government to decentralize, the land structure of highly concentrated developments in Bangkok, the capital and the only one Mega-city in that nation. Bangkok has overwhelming and unavoidable factors, such as a big market, many kind of infrastructure and government offices which many manufacturing companies believe that they need to be near. As international divisions of labor and mega-competition progress all over the world, that tendency will be strengthened in each country.
