The score dropped but the rank improved. Therefore in absolute terms its performance dropped. Nothing to be proud of!  

I don't know if this kind of economic scoring is really absolute performance.

It's the kind of stuff that MBA's make up.

Thailand has made a substantial jump in the global competitiveness rankings, surpassing Malaysia to secure the second position within the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). The 2024 report by the IMD World Competitiveness Centre indicates that Thailand has moved up five positions to rank 25th globally, denoting a significant improvement in its economic performance.

 

Danucha Pichayanan, Secretary-General of the National Economic and Social Development Council, informed the Cabinet of this incredible progress. The ranking, which assessed 67 economic regions, acknowledged Thailand's noteworthy rise. Mr. Pichayanan stated, "Thailand’s economic performance ranking has increased by 11 positions, going from 16th to 5th, primarily due to stronger international trade and an improved current account balance in comparison to last year.”

 

However, Thailand's net score dipped slightly from 74.5 to 72.5, following a similar trend witnessed in most other economic zones since 2023. Despite this slight dip, a primary factor contributing to this accomplishment was the country's performance in international trade. Thailand jumped an impressive 23 positions, moving from 29th to 6th. Additionally, its domestic economy showed growth, rising from 44th to 39th place.

 

There were minimal changes in government efficiency, although public finance ranking improved to 22nd position, three places up from the previous year. Tax policy and social framework remained steady at the 8th and 47th places, respectively. However, the institutional framework slipped five positions to 39th.

 

Business efficiency improved, climbing three spaces to hold the 20th position, driven by improved management practices, which rose seven positions to 15th. The rating for attitudes and values also improved slightly, moving up to 18th place.

 

In terms of infrastructure, most categories remained stable from last year. Technological infrastructure and education maintained their previous positions at 25th and 54th, respectively. Basic infrastructure and scientific infrastructure experienced slight drops, while health and environment descended by two positions, ranking 55th.

Beginning to become really confused by the articles presented in this forum.  Daily for months we have seen the economic dire performances, shrinking baht, closure of vehicle  manufacturers, etc, and then today this article telling us that the Thai economy is BOOMING!  If the statements in this article are all true, then many other countries in this region plus others are really suffering.  I just don't know what to believe.

In other words, Thailand is the tallest midget.

Propaganda... Thailand trying too hard to convince people/investors (and themselves) that it's not a failing economy (government and educational system), and an increasingly diluted cultural experience.

Looking at how many categories remained stable or declined and how few improved, it seems that Malaysia has slipped, rather than Thailand has improved.

Yeah once one reads the whole articles of today, the headline is meant to capture one's eyes and they you read the whole thing an realize it is maybe half right but half wrong too.
