Let me see if I have this right. The survey of 1,000 companies was conducted from April to November 2007. The report was produced with a date of June 2008. And it took the "crack" staff at the World Bank Group more than a year from that date to issue a press release about the findings of a report that by now is out of date and totally irrelevant, as in the two years since the survey was conducted there have been numerous changes to the global (and Thai)Investment Climate. What can we expect next from the World Bank Group ... a press release about a 2007 World Bank survey that showed people are worried about a global financial crisis on the horizon? Or, perhaps, we can expect the World Bank to report that its 1998 survey on the health of banks in Asia revealed banks needed to recapitalize to survive?
