There were 1,339 factories with 34,569 employees and a total investment of approximately Bt56.9 billion registered for sale or out of business in the first 10 months of 2019, according to the Industry Ministry.

That´s worrying! What in the world can be the reason for this terrible circumstance?

The factories were classified into 21 industrial groups including crop products, food, drinks, clothes, woodwork, paper, chemical products, machines, electronic devices, and automobiles.

Ooh, that means we can almost in an easy way sum it up to be "The factories belonged to all areas of business", which must mean that it´s a big factor that is behind this ordeal.

Entrepreneurs are meanwhile expressing concern that Thailand’s subdued economic situation in 2019 would continue in 2020.

Yeah, and why is that?

Thai Plastic Industrial 1994 PCL managing director Teerachai Teerarujinon said the future of the industry was uncertain with the risk still high, and the matter of most concern in the next two or three years would be labour security, since a majority of labourers from neighbouring countries that Thailand depends on would expectantly return to their homeland if the Thai economy got worse.

There is nothing wrong with the Thai economy. The Baht is stronger than ever!

Hmmm... wait now....Can that be the big factor? The Thai Baht is to strong? Nah, can´t believe that, can we?

Many manufacturers in any country have parts of their part supply chain outside of the country, that is entirely normal.

 

There are a good number of Chinese companies coming here, especially to areas like Thai Chinese Industrial Estate by Amata, they cannot get land quick enough. Obviously a tiny % of companies moving from China to Thailand is a flood given the differentials in the size of the market.

 

The economy is not great at the moment in Thailand and around the World, but to claim there are no Chinese companies locating here shows you have pretty limited knowledge on the subject.

 

And i also believe that China labor rates are actually higher than Thailand now.

Having Chinese companies is not necessarily a good thing. For example, Alibaba just got approved to build a giant warehouse in Thailand that is bigger than the entire island of Phuket. Alibaba will make 95% of Thai businesses obsolete within a decade. Alibaba does absolutely nothing to help the Thai economy. They use Chinese factories to make everything and all their workers are AI and robots. Classic Trojan Horse. Thailand made a big mistake by choosing Alibaba over Amazon. Their entire country will essentially become a Chinese territory used for slave labour by 2030. Versus the USA would have helped Thailand to prosper and head in the direction of Vietnam which has a bright future. China seems great at first because they flash a lot of cash but essentially you're doing a deal with the devil. Chinese are extremely racist as well, they view those with darker skin as inferior due to having a lower average IQ and not having to evolve in the harsher conditions of Northern Asia. The end goal  of the Chinese is to move all of their slave labor camps into Southeast Asia. They have already taken over Cambodia in this regard and you now see signs like this "No Cambodians Allowed" hanging all over buildings in Cambodia. Same thing will happen in Thailand. Same thing is actually happening in the US. Chinese are buying up America right out from under. Chinese are genius. Anyways, this is why I'm heavily invested in both Alibaba and China. I expect a 10x return at least.

Maybe a similar thing happening in the UK. Companies like Amazon having warehouses selling billions of $$ worth of goods, hardly any of which are produced in the UK. They probably pay almost no corporation tax either, their employees would, if they were paid enough to??

Could also go and ask Carlsberg or Pepsi then.

Pepsi have a huge facility in Nongkhae industrial park in Saraburi and another one in Amata City Rayong.

It's been said I am a sceptic as well as a right leaning relic from a bygone era.....not that I give a rats arz!  But after several decades of watching the rise and fall and rise again of countries and currencies I have come to the conclusion we the great unwashed masses are rarely, if never, placed to take advantage of the sea of money that is there to be made.  It's a rigged game plain and simple.  This is  what is happening in Thailand now.  I have several hundred thousand baht in the bank which I would like to use but having to leave 400.000 baht for visa, 200.000 baht for a medical emergency.....treatment in a government hospital......plus 160k in blue book and cash. Foiled again by the looks of it.  Oh For a few extra million!  😥

If this is not fake news, then I hope it continues. I'm an expat who's buying less and investing less in Thailand because the government thinks so little of me. I just returned from the US and bought 2 iphone 11's. One for the wife and one for me. These are the kind of purchases I would have made in Thailand if  I felt I was respected more. I've been here 10 years and bought 2 new cars-cash. But I will drive the current car until it will go no more. I'm still waiting for the other shoe to drop on the mandatory insurance scam. I have Blue Cross Blue Shield international which has already paid for 2 major operations here. The foreign insurance verification form was obviously designed by a moron because foreign insurance companies use percentages like 90% or 70% and not hard money figures to calculate coverage. When that shoe drops, I'll be moving. I'll continue to support my wife and by extension, her family. I'll come back as a low quality tourist to see her. I'll have any major medical procedures that are not emergencies done in the US where they will be free. Again this is money that Thailand will never see. Enough said.

Yes there is a huge difference between 130 Baht and 140 Baht. Especially when it's well known that all bars in Thailand can fix there own price.

Don’t know where he’s drinking. Pattaya Bar last night good lively  bar, good music free pool table. Cashier with the most enormous plastic boobs small Chang 50bht.

A friend of my wifes works for a major car manufacturer here ,she is in quite a high position and is in sales ,traveling to many countrys ,they have many many many thousands of cars stored as nobody is buying them ,owing to the high baht . she says its very worrying ,also our son is in charge of a Thai company ,they are doing quite well ,but many companys on the estate are in great difficulty he was saying this weekend .

I went to buy a used 2016 Mercedes SLK 200 ( 25,000 km mileage ) for my wife in Bangkok the other day. The asking price was 2.5 million. I offered a 2.3 million baht bank transfer right there on the spot. The dealership rejected my offer. I was stunned. I could buy this same exact car in the US for 700,000 baht. I felt sick paying 1.8 million baht extra for a car that's not all that special...but the wife wanted it.

 

Clearly the Thai car dealerships aren't struggling that much because they literally turned down a 2.3 million baht sale, a squabble of 200,000 baht. They clearly think they can get the 2.5 million from some other schmuck. I refused to cave to their pressure as this Mercedes dealership was extremely rude, pompous, and just didn't seem to care about my business.
