Thailand's prime minister gave the opening speech at an investment forum in Bangkok this week, focussing on Thailand's attractive investment environment.
The PM says his government has learnt from the global slowdown, and will steer the country's economic recovery. He says Thailand's basic economic structure remains strong, with 32 percent export growth and 16 percent investment growth. Though the sluggish tourism industry is under-performing, he says the country remains attractive to investors. The ongoing reconciliation plan is working to mend the domestic political rift.
The forum includes panelists from the World Bank, leading commercial organizations and media leaders.
