Thailand’s New Monarch offers political stability

Thailand Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn was crowned the new King on Thursday, even as the country continues its year-long mourning over the death of his father King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

The public crowning ceremony will only take place late-2017 after the previous king’s cremation.

The 64-year old will adopt the new title King Rama X of the Chakri dynasty, leading one of Asia’s richest and most powerful monarchies. The crown regularly invests in businesses and real estate across Thailand
