    @Comment: I still think the China + 1 trend will continue. Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia will benefit. :

    considering that the trade conflicts between the usa and china seem to be far from over and might well increase too, i’d also think that there will be some production leaving china and coming to south east asia and other countries in the region…

    • From what I’ve seen in the #’s, FDI to china was already declining since … 2015. Vietnam picked up a chunk because Thailand was too busy slapping themselves itself in the face.

      • peter satrapa-binder

        yes, but it looks like the trend will continue and maybe strengthen. and i remember newspaper reports from the time the us-china trade problems started: in short many of them were generally about Thailand moaning, but Vietnam (among some other countries) grabbing the resulting opportunities…

  2. So now Central has bought out Familymart from their Japanese partner we have Central vs CP in the mini mart and CP vs Charoen in the supermarket…

    Should Thailand just hand the keys over to these 3 families and let them run the ship? Maybe they will do a better job than Prayuth..

    • Thailand already handed the keys over to CP and Charoen decades ago. Prem was Chairman of Thai Bev…how else did he get the monopoly and survive ’97? And a country controlled by a few families is $hit, look at the Philippines.

      For the convenience store market, most countries only have 2 players, a third player typically gets wiped out.
