Asian Development Bank and Thailand: Fact Sheet
Asian Development Bank | July 2006
Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides social and economic indicators on Thailand as well as concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information. Thailand’s remarkable recovery from the Asian financial crisis of 1997 further solidified its economic standing. The country still faces major development challenges common to many middle-income countries. These fall into three broad categories: promoting economic growth, supporting inclusiveness and social development, and achieving sustainable development. The Government’s approach to economic growth and development places considerable emphasis on the need to improve physical infrastructure and to strengthen domestic capital markets. Thailand also faces the challenge of institutionalizing social protection mechanisms to help workers as well as vulnerable persons—including the poor, women, children, the elderly, and disabled people.
