Eyes on reshaping China: illuminating opportunities for Thai businessesChina is undergoing a major restructuring of its economic strategy that will create a "new normal" of somewhat slower but more sustainable GDP growth. Under the new approach, consumption and the service sector will become the economy’s key engine, displacing the leading role of investment, which helped generate a growth rate of more than 9% per year during the past decade. Because China has the world's second largest economy, with the most trade and largest population, the ongoing change will have ramifications throughout the world. This includes implications for the Thai economy, which depends heavily on trade and investment with China. Thai businesses should stay well informed about the new developments in China and adapt their strategies and tactics according to the emerging dynamics.
