Thailand: August exports up 8.9% y/y, below forecast

Exports rose a smaller-than-expected 8.93% in August from a year earlier, Commerce Ministry data showed on Friday.

That compares with a forecast rise of 13.5% in August in a Reuters poll and follows July’s 20.27% increase.

Earlier this week, Commerce Minister Jurin Laksanawisit said coronavirus restrictions had affected manufacturing and logistics.
