The University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce's consumer confidence index fell to 44.7 in May 2021 from 46.0 a month earlier. This was the lowest reading since at least February 1999, amid the third wave of COVID-19 infections, with the government of Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-o-cha facing mounting criticism for its virus handling. The leader wants to vaccinate 70% of the population by the end of the year, but so far only about 4% of its 69 million people have received at least one dose. In Q4 2020, Southeast Asia's second-largest economy shrank by 4.2 percent yoy, slowing from a 6.4 percent plunge in Q3, due to efforts from the government and the central bank to mitigate the economic fallout from the pandemic. source: University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce
