Population in Thailand
Thailand - PopulationFollowing a moderation in the pace of growth in the third quarter of 2018, the economy should have accelerated in the final quarter on the back of rising private consumption. Indeed, in October–November, annual private consumption growth remained broadly unchanged from the multi-year high averaged in the second quarter. In less positive news, however, the trade balance likely fell into the red in the fourth quarter on weakening export growth amid global trade tensions and robust import growth reflective of firming domestic demand. Moreover, business confidence worsened in December, falling into pessimistic territory. Meanwhile, in the political arena, scheduled general elections were once again delayed—this time from 24 February to mid-March, due to supposed administrative difficulties. This impelled the first protesters to take to the streets since the military government outlawed such demonstrations following the 2014 coup d’état.
