Four out of every five economists polled agreed that economic reform is essential, not just political reform, with many warning Thailand could otherwise face a severe recession or even bankruptcy in 10 years, Bangkok Poll said on Thursday. 

The research centre at Bangkok University, or Bangkok Poll, reported the results of a survey on the Thai economy and national reform, interviewing 60 economists at 32 leading organisations between Jan 8 and 17.

As many as 83.4% of the respondents agreed economic reform is needed, only 8.3% disagreed, and the remaining 8.3% were unsure, the pollster reported.
