Facing various risks especially from the external sector in 2016, would Thai economy gain speed in growth this year? Political, economic and financial issues in European countries, the U.S. and China are seen as challenges for Thailand's economic growth. However, many experts believe that Thailand will receive an economic boost due to the government's efforts, increasing domestic spending and effects of ASEAN economic network. But will the Thai economy gain speed in 2017 and how fast will it be?
