KResearch forecasts 2019 Thai GDP to grow 4% Stcoks—07 Dec 18

Bangkok--7 Dec--KASIKORNBANK

KASIKORN RESEARCH CENTER (KResearch) held a seminar titled "Thai Economy to Face Challenges in the Year of the Pig", suggesting that Thailand's economy will likely perform better in the last quarter of 2018, with growth at higher than 4 percent compared to the 3.3-percent pace reported in the previous quarter, due to new stimulus measures of the government launched in December and the recovering tourism sector, plus continual growth in private consumption and investment. As for the entire year, economic growth is expected at 4.3 percent, against the prior estimate of 4.6 percent in line with slower exports and tourism in 3Q18.

Next year, KResearch does not expect it to be very easy, especially on the international front. Dr. Siwat Luangsomboon, KResearch Assistant Managing Director, said impacts of the trade war will be more serious than those seen this year. The US and China may not come up with an agreement within the expected timeline, and this will disturb the international trade atmosphere over the whole year. For Thailand, this situation is expected to affect our trade value by USD3.1 billion. In addition to the trade war issue, uncertainties remain on the matters of Brexit, Italy's fiscal situation and currency fluctuations in newly emerging markets, such as Turkey, Indonesia, the Philippines and India, all o
