Country Report
The article discusses about the future of Thailand's economy. According to the report, there's no sign that the country will exceed its rate of expansion registered in the fourth quarter of 2005. In the observation, it discloses that the economy has grown weaker and the export-based economy has been unable to accelerate growth. The country needs to make more investments in the development of its physical infrastructure to make it more attractive as a destination for direct and portfolio investment flows. However, recent political events, leading to the disintegration of parliament will be a hindrance to the government's program.
