Political, economic and financial issues in European countries, the U.S. and China, especially a disruptive change in the financial sector in 2017 are seen as challenges for Thailand’s economic growth. However, Thai economy is projected by Thai government to grow nearly 5% in 2018, while many experts predict that the economy will grow 3.5 – 4% due to exports, domestic investment and tourism.
