If you are an investor and interested in Thailand, you are trying to reduce systemic risk.  That is likely a Chinese (or Indian) investor wanting to have additional overseas assets and cash flow beyond their government’s hands, or any other party just wanting to launder money.  If 100% of your production is in China, getting ~20% out of the country makes sense when balancing risks.  Same for India— the capital controls and currency issues Modi’s government created makes having overseas production or investment a stabilizing factor.

 

For most other countries, the military government and trends over the past 5 years would make Thailand a higher risk investment.

Investors have never cared too much about political risk in Thailand, business as usual involves the potential for a coup which is seen as no big deal, they have had twenty two in the past hundred years! Even when soldiers were tanks were on the streets and snipers were killing people on Silom, the background economy kept ticking over and tourists kept flying to the beaches.
