Thailand's industry confidence index rises to 10-year high in March 2023
Thailand's Industrial Sentiment Index (TISI) rose to 97.8 points in March 2023 from 94.1 points and 96.8 points in January 2023 and February 2023, respectively, according to the Thai government. This number is the highest since January 2013.
An opinion survey of 1,322 industrial entrepreneurs covering 45 industry groups found an increase in domestic demand due to increased purchasing power and a recovery in tourism.
On the other hand, rising raw material prices, energy costs, inflation and rising production costs due to the state of the baht currency remain concerns. In response to this situation, the Thai government has made it clear that it is ready to respond to proposals from the private sector to address concerns such as high energy prices and the need to secure new markets for Thai products.
