Internal issues in Thailand driving growth of defence industry
Thailand Defence and Security Report Q4 2013 - a new market research report on 2014-03-24 07:26:01
Though territorial disputes involving China and several South East Asian countries have been in the news of late, Thailand has been largely uninvolved in these events. Instead, it remains preoccupied with its own international problems, two of which are particularly pressing. The first is the ongoing power struggle between the royalist-military establishment and the Shinawatra family backed by the mass Red Shirt movement. The second is the seemingly intractable problem of the insurgency in Thailand´s deep south.

Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra continues to manoeuvre with a view to securing the return of her brother Thaksin from exile. Himself a former prime minister, Thaksin was ousted in 2006 by an army coup.

While Yingluck has gone to great pains to conciliate the military leadership and the palace, she has begun to exert pressure for her brother´s return. In July, she appointed herself as defence minister; in doing so she gave herself an important say in the military appointments process, and she may intend to use this as a bargaining chip when it comes to agreeing the terms of Thaksin´s homecoming with the army chiefs. A new amnesty bill drafted with Thaksin in mind was also put before parliament in August.
