Chinese economy in 1Q20 contracted for the first time since record-keeping began; 1-3% growth expected through 2020 (Business Brief No.3861)

The Chinese economy contracted by 6.8 percent (YoY) in 1Q20, marking the first time that the Chinese economy has experienced a contraction since statistical reports began in 1992. The main reason for this phenomenon is the stringent COVID-19 disease control and prevention measures issued by the Chinese authorities, including lockdown orders and orders for domestic tour operators to cease tour package sales. Such measures have caused a partial stagnation of economic activity throughout China. Some of the impacts can be seen in retail sales and industrial production figures in 1Q20, which declined by 19.64 percent (YTD, YoY) and 8.4 percent (YTD, YoY), respectively....Read more

COVID-19 Causes New Normal of Rubber Prices...Thailand Must Adjust to Era of Prolonged Low Rubber Prices (Current Issue No.3106)

KResearch assesses that the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in 2020 will be a short-term factor causing the rubber price structure to change over the long term.

COVID-19 Causes 2020 Thai Exports to US to shrink for the First Time in 10 Years at 9.2% (Current Issue No.3101)

The increase was supported by the US-China trade war, which helped bolster our key exports, i.e., HDDs and auto tires, to the US. Other Thai shipments that met the needs of American consumers, such as automobiles, auto-parts and canned seafood products, grew at favorable pace, as well. ...Read more
