ABSTRACT
The article offers news briefs related to economic and political condition in Thailand. On July 7, 2008, a court ruled that the anti-government protestors led by the People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD) had to stop their demonstrations of Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej's offices. The overall balance of payments in the country slewed into deficit territory due to a run up in capital outflows. The political situation is impossible to do serious damage to the business environment in the country.
