Survey on Economic Confidence after General Election Shows that Most Thais Do Not Change their Views on Thai Economy (Current Issue No.2989)

           KResearch conducted a survey on the confidence of Thai households and entrepreneurs towards the Thai economy before and after the 2019 general election on March 25 and April 3, 2019. The poll shows that Thai households and entrepreneurs surveyed have changed their views towards the Thai economy after the general election, i.e., the number of those saying they had more confidence towards the Thai economy after the general election dropped when the second survey was conducted on them. Such respondents cited that future political situation may restrict their daily life.

            Although the number of respondents having more confidence towards the Thai economy after the 2019 general election declined in the second survey, such respondents attached more importance to steady budgetary disbursements of the state. This may suggest that some of the respondents continue to place significance on current actions of the government, especially the effort to promote the development of new infrastructure projects, given that continuing public investment will likely maintain confidence in the Thai economy and sustain the economic growth during the political transition period.        ​
