    News, Pavida Pananond, Published on 23/08/2019

    » Thailand's economy appears both odd and contradictory. On one hand, it continues to expand in the 3% range, an appealing growth trend by international standards. On the other hand, cursory and anecdotal evidence suggests the Thai economy is mired in a prolonged malaise.

    How US-China trade impacts Thailand

    News, Pavida Pananond, Published on 14/09/2018

    What a trade war means for Southeast Asia

    News, Pavida Pananond, Published on 17/08/2018

    » Although it's still early days in the so-called "trade war" between the United States and China, its knock-on effects are already palpable.

From official estimates early this year of upwards of 4%, the World Bank's latest projection now pegs economic expansion at just above 2%.
