Thai Economy should Grow in 2021 as Virus Curbs ease

The Thai economy is currently stagnant, registering its worst performance since 1997 when the Asian Financial Crisis hit. The GDP has declined by 6.1%. This year’s numbers are expected to be even worse, with only 0-1% growth predicted for 2021 because demand and foreign tourism – the two sectors driving Thailand’s economic engine – have dropped. Some recent developments offer hope: following last year’s devastating tourist crisis, STV visas and Phuket Sandbox came into effect. Thailand’s economy is expected to be buoyed by exports over the next year. Thanks in part to vaccine progress and fiscal stimulus packages, Thailand will once again see increased growth later this year. In 2020, Thailand ranked #21 in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business index (Sources: Deloitte, IMF, Nasdaq, and World Bank).
