The Thai baht's climb against the yuan has proven to be only a mild deterrent, as mainland Chinese buyers continue to flock to the Thai capital, states a Bangkok Post article (29 July 2019). The unpredictability of the US-China trade row has driven Chinese investors to continue to buy Thai properties, though at a slower rate compared to 2018. Carrie Law, chief executive and director of Chinese international property portal, said further growth of Chinese purchases of Thai properties is expected in 2019. "This is a good year for developers to sell to the Chinese in the face of slower momentum from local buyers," she said.
