Thailand needs bold structural reforms to strengthen government institutions — like the judiciary — reduce the role of exports, curb corruption, increase transparency and cut red tape to encourage both domestic start-ups and foreign investment.
Confidence could be restored by offering a coherent and proactive revival programme with specific goals and deadlines — including a timeline for when the generals will restore civilian rule. The last thing the country needs is a return to the past those same generals claimed to be fighting against.
