BMI View: We forecast positive, albeit tepid, growth in Thailand's trade in 2017 and over our five-year forecast period to 2021.While stronger growth will remain contingent on a significant reduction in political risks and improvements in the operating environment, this will mark an improvement on recent years. Nevertheless we highlight that Thailand's open economy remains highly exposed to headwinds emanating from a slowdown in global trade, particularly given slow growth in key trading partners such as Japan and China and risks of protectionism from the US.
Thailand's transport sector is set to benefit from capacity enhancement in road and rail, supported by a state-led drive to reduce logistic costs and congestion and turn the country into a logistics hub for the ASEAN region. Changes in leadership are unlikely to derail any broad transport development plans. Nevertheless, persistent operating risks continue to cause delays in Thailand's infrastructure projects, with only 2% of the planned USD40bn outlay spent as of March 2017. However, we expect that projects will move forward more quickly in the coming years as initial bureaucratic and financial burdens are resolved.
