Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

BMI View: We expect healthy growth across Thailand's maritime shipping sector in 2015. While challengesfrom the volatile political situation - following the establishment of a military government in May 2014 -persist, the government has introduced a range of measures which should help boost the economy andreassure investors. Externally, the market for Thai exports is looking stronger, and continued investmentinto the maritime facilities will see growth continue over the longer term.
