The number of start-ups rose 12% to 6,525 in June from May, led by construction businesses, according to the Business Development Department.
Director-general Banchongchit Angsusingh said on Monday compared to same month last year, the number of new businesses grew 10%.
Total registered capital in June was 40.9 billion baht, up 30% month-on-month and 130% year-on-year, largely thanks to capital-intensive businesses such as transport and logistics, as well as property development.
