Thailand's Government is a Unitary state, Constitutional Monarchy, Parliamentary System. The Government of Thailand is made of three branches, The executive, Legislative, and the Judiciary. All the branches of the government are located in Bangkok. The prime minister Of Thailand is Yingluck Shinawatra.

Economy

Thailand is a new industrialized country. Thailand's government is going to be paralyzed for months. Thailand’s economy remains export-dependent. Thailand is the 2nd largest economy in Southeast Asia after Indonesia. Thailand has a well-developed infrastructure, and a free-enterprise economy.


Thailand exports products such as rice, shrimps, tapioca, rubber and sugar. The main destinations for Thailand’s exports are the rest of Asia and the US. Thailand's economy is not doing so well at this time. But soon will recover, in my opinion.

Company List

I think shrimp companies would come to Thailand. The reason I recommend a shrimp company is because there is lots of tasty shrimp in Thailand. There is also many or shrimp and the people love shrimp which would make the business wealthy. And also from the reviews the shrimp is very tasty.
I think the rubber companies should recommend coming to Thailand. The reason why I choose the rubber companies is because, there is lots of rubber in Thailand. Thailand is also the largest rubber producer in the world. There is also a large supply so that's an advantage.
I think Tapioca companies are an amazing fit in Thailand. The reason why is because lots of Tapioca is produced in Thailand. Tapioca is very easy to grow and produce. Tapioca is also very popular in Thailand. So I definitely recommend a Tapioca company to come too Thailand.
I recommend and also think that sugar companies should come to Thailand. Thailand has very high quality sugar. Sugar is easy produced in Thailand. Although not many companies are allowed to import sugar to the U.S I think its a good choice that they move there company to Thailand.
I think that a rice company would do well in Thailand. The reason why is because rice is a tradition so it will sell well. Its also very easy to produce there and there is lots of rice sold. I think its a very good choice they start a company in Thailand.
