Thailand - Country economic memorandum (Inglês)

This report evaluates the macroeconomic and sector developments of Thailand during the recent decades. It recognizes that Thailand has been extremely successful in managing its economic policy and is now the world's fastest growing economy since the beginning of the 1980's. After analyzing the major factors that positively influenced the economic growth, externalities, and the associated costs, this report identifies three major issues confronting policymakers in Thailand: (i) the sustainability of current economic progress; (ii) distribution of income and wealth; and (iii) the environmental impact associated with the deterioration of natural resources and general productive assets, and its effects on personal health resulting from air and water pollution. Finally, the report concludes that open economic policies have allowed Thailand to adjust quickly to changing international and domestic circumstances. Experience suggests that an appropriate institutional framework is in place and that the tradition of sound economic management in Thailand will permit a continuation of high economic growth well into the middle of the present decade that will help sustain social progress to the end of the century.
