Our goal was to identify the key characteristics associated with a decrease in trust or increase in perceived risk between local businesses and the company at fault for the Rayong Oil Spill. We found that the fishing and tourism industries experienced negative economic impacts. The company's lack of corporate transparency and inconsistent monetary compensation led to decreased trust and increased risk associated with long-term impacts. Future researchers can expand our research to improved oil spill response protocols in the future.
