Thailand: Increase 8.9 pct seen in exports during August

(MENAFN) On Friday, Sep. 24 official figures demonstrated the Thai exports, a main driver of the nation’s economic expansion surged 8.9 percent year over year last month.

The expansion dropped from a rise of 20.3 percent recorded during July, said the Ministry of Commerce, which ascribed the slower expansion to curfew procedures that weighed on manufacturing and logistics.

In the January-August period of 2021, Thailand’s exports came to USD176.96 billion, an increase 15.2 percent from one year ago.
