    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. Both sides have accused each other of unfair trade practices, and both have imposed a series of tit-for-tat tariffs and other protectionist measures that could lead to a runaway retaliatory logic and spiral beyond anyone's control.

    Global investment risk levels on rise

    News, Pavida Pananond, Published on 18/01/2018

    » Amid growing confidence of a global economic rebound and better domestic growth prospects, the 2018 investment outlook should not ignore downside factors that could hinder the long-run growth momentum.

    Beyond lofty 'Thailand 4.0' rhetoric

    News, Pavida Pananond, Published on 20/01/2017

    » In the aftermath of last year's Brexit and Donald Trump's surprising election victory, the global economy this year will face risks and uncertainties. Stagnant world trade growth will be further dampened by increasing protectionism and populism in the US, the EU and Asia.

    The imperative of export-led growth 2.0

    News, Pavida Pananond, Published on 19/05/2016

    » Thailand is no stranger to military seizures of power. The Thai system has developed built-in resilience to absorb and overcome political uncertainty and economic shocks from putsches. However, its 13th coup two years ago, spearheaded by Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha, coincides with a new pattern of economic challenges, requiring a more holistic and integrative policy framework that hinges on an open and stable political environment.

    Owning up to Panama Papers in Thailand

    News, Pavida Pananond, Published on 19/04/2016

    » While the so-called Panama Papers have sent shockwaves through the corridors of power and wealth the world over, their ramifications for Thailand have yet to be laid bare.

    News, Pavida Pananond, Published on 19/11/2015

    » Thailand wants to go places. It wants to rise up in world rankings. Although its military leaders sometimes feign ignorance and defiance as if the world revolves around Bangkok, not the other way around, it does seek global recognition in many ways.
