RAM Ratings reaffirms Thailand's ratings

RAM Ratings reaffirmed Thailand's global and ASEAN-scaleratings of gBBB1(pi) and seaAA1(pi), respectively, with a stable outlook.

The rating agency said the ratings reflect the country's robustexternal finances, strong fiscal position and well-diversified economy.However, the strengths are balanced by risks of political upheavals andstructural challenges that constrain growth potential.
