    Not that gloomy,

    After all the political unrest and the untalked about anxiety about the King,

    Thai exports up 46 pct in June









    Thai exports for June rose 46.3 per cent to USD 18.04 billion in June 2010 over June of last year, according to Commerce Minister Porntiva Nakasai.
    The Commerce Ministry has revised up Thai exports growth target for this year from 14 per cent to 19 per cent, with a projected export value of USD 183 billion.
    Meanwhile, imports increased by 37.9 per cent at USD 15.72 billion, to give Thailand a USD 2.32 billion trade surplus.



    BOT revises up Thai GDP 2010 growth forecast to 6.5-7.5 pct








    The Bank of Thailand (BoT) has revised up this year's projection for Thailand's gross domestic product (GDP) to 6.5 to 7.5 per cent from its April's forecast of 4.3 per cent to 5.8 per cent.
    According to BoT's assistant governor for Monetary Policy Group, Paiboon Kittisrikangwan the BoT also adjusted its core inflation rate (food,energy excluded) projection to 0.5 to 1.3 per cent, from the previous projection of 1 to 2 per cent.
    The Nation.
    The stock market is doing well as is exports and the balance of payments



    BUT,

    The Federation of Thai Industries says the political conflict could cost the tourism industry more than $1 billion, after images of deadly clashes between anti-government protesters and security forces were flashed across the world.

    I am sure the unrest is going to cost Thailand big time. To the OS traveller Vietnam is becoming the flavour of the month and these political statements the Thais keep making just deter SE Asian visitors from coming to LOS. I wish Thais would fix problems instead of just sweeping them under the carpet and being satisfied with short term relative stability
