ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the economic conditions that are likely to prevail in Thailand in 2006. The profits fetched by the manufacturing sector have accelerated the Gross Domestic Product growth to 5.6% year-on-year (y-o-y), as compared to 3.3% y-o-y in Q105. Seeing the continued robust enlargement of the Chinese economy and a recovery in the global electronics market, it is expected that the economic growth in Thailand, will boost in the coming years. With China's economic growth increasing and rise in the worldwide demand for electronics, it is projected that the economic growth in Thailand will average 5.0% annually over the 2006-2009 period.
