Navigating Pension I: Guidelines for Adapting to New-Normal (Thai Session)

  • LIVE WEBCAST: 18 June 2020


The COVID-19 pandemic is by far the top headline for the turbulent 2020, as the public health crisis continues to disrupt the economy. Thailand’s 1Q2020 GDP contracted -1.8% YOY and may contract as much as -9.0% in 2020, with unemployment projected as high as 13% towards the end of Q21.

The effects of the “New Normal” environment – low inflation, ultra-low interest rates, sluggish demands and subdued economic growth – on how your business operates are inevitable and significant. Navigating this environment without a robust governance and accounting framework can lead to unexpected impact down the road.
