Parents in Bangkok Metropolitan Area are expected to spend around THB28.2 billion to get their children ready for school year 2019 (Current Issue No.2986)

During the back-to-school season, consumers with school-age children normally have higher expenditures associated with their children’s education. KResearch’s survey finds that over 54.2 percent of parents are concerned about the amount of their cash flow to spend during the 2019 semester; however, the rate is lower than the result from the last year’s survey. The sample groups are worried about their financial liquidity for many reasons, including insufficient savings, increased daily expenses, more expensive educational supplies, and the fact that some of these parents have more children attending school. It is worth noting that around five percent of respondents who are concerned about their finances said their main source of funds for their children’s education comes from loans and pledging their valuable items....Read more

Thailand Not Added to US Currency Manipulation Watchlist, But at Risk of Trade Pressure (Current Issue No.2998)

The US Department of Treasury issued the report on macroeconomic and foreign exchange policies of the US’ major trade partners on May 28, 2019, which is about a month behind the original schedule. The report does not specifically label any country as a currency manipulator in order to bolster advantages of the US in trade. However, the US has revised the criteria/conditions of the report, resulting in changes on two important issues: 1) the number of the US’ trade partners that has been included in the assessment increases to 21 countries, compared to 12 countries before; and, 2) the criteria on current trade surplus have been tightened. Thailand, however, has not been added to the US Monitoring List as previously feared. ...Read more

Urgent task of the new government Speed up Thai-EU trade agreement (Current Issue No.2997)

Thai exports to major markets are under pressure from the escalating trade war, which is likely to linger through the end of the year. Moreover, Thai exports may lose market share in the European Union (EU) to neighboring ASEAN countries in the near future, if the EU can conclude bilateral trade deals with them. In particular, there are expectations of an imminent free-trade agreement between the EU and Vietnam as the talks are nearly wrapped up, with only the investment clause left to be sorted out. Once concluded, the FTA between the EU and Vietnam is likely to pose a big challenge for Thai outbound shipments to the EU market....Read more
