The main environmental issues that Thailand faces are deforestation, soil erosion, wildlife trade, and air and water pollution. The positive economic development that Thailand has experienced has come at the price of the degradation of the country’s extensive natural resources. 1 In 2015, the government adopted emission standards, phased out lead in gasoline, and removed a number of polluting rickshaws in the streets to decrease air pollution in Bangkok. Better air quality has already improved the health and quality of life of residents in the city.2 Worldwide climate change affects farmland in Thailand, making lowlands and coastal areas more susceptible to flooding. In order to curb the effects of climate change, the government developed a Climate Change Action Plan in order to educate the public ...See More and implement regulations about environmental conservation.3 Show Less

With a well-developed infrastructure, a free-enterprise economy, generally pro-investment policies, and strong export industries, Thailand achieved steady growth due largely to industrial and agriculture exports - mostly electronics, agricultural commodities, automobiles and parts, and processed foods. Thailand is trying to maintain growth by encouraging domestic consumption and public investment to offset weak exports in 2012. Unemployment, at less than 1% of the labor force, stands as one of the lowest levels in the world, which puts upward pressure on wages in some industries. Thailand also attracts nearly 2.5 million migrant workers from neighboring countries. The Thai government is implementing a ...See More nation-wide 300 baht ($10) per day minimum wage policy and deploying new tax reforms designed to lower rates on middle-income earners. The Thai economy has weathered internal and external economic shocks in recent years. The global economic crisis severely cut Thailand's exports, with most sectors experiencing double-digit drops. In 2009, the economy contracted 2.3%. However, in 2010, Thailand's economy expanded 7.8%, its fastest pace since 1995, as exports rebounded. In late 2011 growth was interrupted by historic flooding in the industrial areas in Bangkok and its five surrounding provinces, crippling the manufacturing sector. Industry recovered from the second quarter of 2012 onward with GDP growth at 5.5% in 2012. The government has approved flood mitigation projects worth $11.7 billion, which were started in 2012, to prevent similar economic damage, and an additional $75 billion for infrastructure over the next seven years with a plan to start in 2013.
