Impact Assessment of COVID-19 on Thai Industrial Sector
UNIDO aims to investigate the industrial sector, in particular the manufacturing sector, and to illuminate what kinds of impacts firms have experienced, how they have been coping with the pandemic crisis, and what kinds of support they have received so far. Additionally, we discuss to what extent these impacts have affected the country’s progress towards inclusive and sustainable industrial development as embedded in Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 9 to build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation. Lastly, we offer some policy recommendations.
These findings are gathered from an online survey in collaboration with the Ministry of Industry, Industrial Estate Authority of Thailand and Small and Medium Enterprise Institute under the Federation of Thai Industries and UNIDO’s networks in Thailand.
This is part of the series of the impact assessments of COVID-19, conducted by UN Thailand.
