StrategicRISK report examines the risk management challenges facing firms operating in Thailand
Welcome to StrategicRISK’s 2014 Thailand Risk Report, which looks at the major challenges facing corporates operating in Thailand at this critical time for the South-East Asian nation. Since we produced last year’s report on Thailand, the country has slipped further into a political crisis that has no end in sight. Moreover, the
damage being done to its economy is becoming ever more severe.
While researching this report, we talked to local risk practitioners and brokers, who explained that violence, corruption and regulatory stagnation were distracting Thailand’s ‘ruling class’ from focusing on long-term goals central to maintaining the health of the nation’s economy.
This report is produced with the support of Zurich and with the assistance of the Pan-Asia Risk and Insurance Management Association (PARIMA).
PARIMA’s aim is to strengthen and enhance the risk culture in the region through the creation of opportunities for education and dialogue within the risk management community (see more at parima.org).
It is a mission that sits comfortably with the aims of our publication and we will be working with PARIMA members in the future to bring you comprehensive coverage of Asia-Pacific’s risk landscape. Keep an eye out for future risk reports on countries such as China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam and the Philippines - and our pan-Asia risk report and interactive.
