Thailand is a country in transition. It was just three years ago when a coup replaced head of state - Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra. Since then, the country has remained challenged. Most recently in April, Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva declared a state of emergency after attempts to topple his government.
Now Prime Minister Vejjaviva has brought his case to New York, telling investors the Thai economy has already bottomed out.
He dropped by the New York Stock Exchange and talked with Maria Bartiromo about the country's recovery. Vejjjajiva told Bartiromo, "we have put in place stimulus packages which are on track, on time, and with investing not just in jobs, but also increasing competitiveness of the economy." Thailand's stimulus plan has a price tag of $42 billion over the next three years. That's equal to one percent of their GDP this year.
