The Thailand Development Research Institute (TDRI) is a non-profit non-government Thai policy think tank focused on social and economic development issues. The institute has six major research programs: Human resources and social development; international economic relations; macroeconomic policy; natural resources and environment; science and technology development; and sectoral economics.

TDRI was established as a public policy research institute in 1984. Its legal form is that of a private non-profit foundation. It provides technical analysis (mostly, but not entirely, in economic areas) to various public agencies to help formulate policies to support long-term economic and social development in Thailand.

In line with this central objective, it is mandated to:[1]

  • Conduct policy research
  • Network extensively with other institutions and individuals engaged in policy research, both in Thailand and abroad
  • Disseminate its research results to ensure maximum impact on policy-making
