Nikkei News Features Asia Foundation Op-Ed on Thailand’s Looming Economic Crisis
September 9, 2020 — Nikkei Asian Review publishes an op-ed written by the Foundation’s Country Representative in Thailand Thomas Parks. The article highlights key findings from Enduring the Pandemic: Surveys of the Impact of Covid-19 on Thai Small Businesses.
Beyond Thailand’s success in limiting the impact of the COVID-19 health crisis, two other crises are unfolding in parallel.
Drawing most attention is the recent wave of student-led protests that have unleashed speculation about Thailand’s political stability. Yet recent data collected by the Asia Foundation points to a more consequential economic crisis that could well outlast the protests and pandemic.
