As the COVID-19 pandemic spread, governments around Southeast Asia initially focussed on emergency health measures. Financial support for economies, business and employment quickly followed. The financial hangover together with the winding-down of stimulus schemes presents clear challenges. In this edition of Deloitte Restructuring Services Insights we examine the economic impact of COVID-19, government fiscal and legislative responses and the risks to business associated with the end of stimulus.
In this edition of Restructuring Services Insights we take a closer look at the Thai economy and markets as well as the impact of COVID-19 on three key sectors; automotive, aviation and tourism.Notwithstanding a relatively low number of confirmed COVID-19 cases, the impact of COVID-19 on Thai businesses has been acute and has been magnified by Thailand’s economic dependence on tourism as well as globally integrated value chains.
