Abstract

Introduction. The subject of this thesis is government and business relations in Thailand. The theoretical basis of this subject mainly originated in studies in political science, economics, and sociology. The macro-perspective approach used in these studies produces an inaccurate description of government and business relations, and generates information which is of limited use to private managers and public administrators during their interaction. Studies of the relationship in developing countries are also scarce. In the light of these weaknesses, the microlevel, interactional approach is used to analyse the relationship in this research. Such an approach brings out the non-homogeneous nature of the relationship in which the government is seen as an institution both offering opportunities and imposing restrictions, and business as being both socially responsible and commercially selfish.
