Foreign Investment Into Thailand Under Gun
Concern is being widely voiced by Thailand's Foreign Chambers of Commerce and the private sector over proposed changes to the country's overseas investment framework.

Bizarrely the business sentiment is shifting at a time when Thailand is set to usher in a free market initiative in 2015 with the AEC (ASEAN Economic Community).
