The Report: Thailand 2012

Located in the heart of South-east Asia, Thailand combines an ancient Buddhist culture with an emerging industrial economy. It is the only South-east Asian country never to have been colonised, and the monarchy dates back to the 14th century. 

In the modern era, Thailand saw great power competition over its neighbours in Indochina give rise to a strong military and unstable domestic politics. Since 1980, however, the country has embarked on a programme of industrialisation and export-led growth that has birthed a budding middle class. Despite a military coup, violent demonstrations and devastating flooding in recent years, the country is back on the path to stable civil governance, economic growth and social reconciliation.
