By 2019, Asia is widely expected to make up roughly 26% of the global financial wealth. The same expectations share Siam Wellness Group Public Company Limited and its stocks. This massive growth is primarily driven by thriving Asian nations such as Thailand.
1997 Asian Financial Crisis
The 1997 Asian Financial Crisis is a historical downfall from where many lessons can be learned. Since then, Thailand has been well-positioned to stay as competitive as bigger countries such as China and Japan.
Gradually, all of these nations had recouped, leading Asia to where it is now. It can be seen by the number of investors who want to work with Siam Wellness Group Public Company Limited. The recovery can be largely attributed to the compelling equity markets in the region.
