The article presents the risk summary of Thailand's political, economic and business-environment conditions. Political stability remains compromised, since Thailand's prime minister have been effectively forced out of office by street protests. Economically, stagflation, rising inflation and a drop in consumer confidence causes Thailand's short-term economic rating to drop. Thailand's business-environment rating remains unchanged. The biggest thing preventing Thailand from getting a higher rating is lack of developed infrastructure and flawed institutions.
