Thailand’s New (interim) Constitution: The Implications for Business

On 22nd July Thailand’s military junta promulgated an interim constitution ostensibly designed to guide the kingdom back onto the path towards “true democracy”. Will this be the charter’s ultimate destination? And what are its practical implications? What will be the likely position of the interim administration towards foreign business?

Vriens & Partners’ Thailand Director, Daniel Giles, gave a comprehensive on-the-ground survey of the interim constitution’s key aspects – including its objectives and distribution of power – and its impact on Thailand’s investment environment on 31 July at Amcham Singapore.
