BANGKOK-Despite the easing of restrictions imposed on businesses to help control COVID-19, which allows them to operate more freely again, there are still many businesses that lack income, causing many entrepreneurs to lack confidence in the economy. They would like the government to ease the restrictions on tourism, and help the business sector to resume its normal activities as soon as possible.

 

The consumer confidence index fell to 31.3 in May as the indicators of all factors such as consumption, investment, tourism, the agricultural sector, industrial sector, trade, services, border trade and employment, dropped in all regions especially the southern region where the confidence of entrepreneurs is at its lowest level of only 28.4, as tourism has been hit heavily and rubber and palm oil planters have also experienced a price slump.


Mr Thanavath Phonvichai, President of the University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce and Chairman of Advisory Board of the Center for Economic and Business Forecasting, said today that entrepreneurs’ confidence could decline further because the business sector is still unable to operate fully despite the fourth phase of measures to ease restrictions that were imposed earlier to control COVID-19.

If Thailand has a lousy tourist season this WInter due to their efforts to woe

Chinese and close by neighbours, that may not have all that money to travel

to Thailand or the want to go there. Well TAT  take a bit of the blame, as well

as Anutin and others like him.  Maybe try to get your visa requirements

to be more favorable, like 90 days No visa required.  Good Luck with your coming high season.

Geezer

Given Thailand's only hope of avoiding the most severe economic depression is strong domestic consumption then this news does not bode at all well.

It is obvious that Thailand is not able to balance health and economic interests.
