Thai June Exports Fall 23.17% Year-on-year, Worse Than Forecast​

BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thailand's exports in June dropped by a bigger-than-expected 23.17% from a year earlier, led by lower shipments of cars, gold and plastic pellets, the commerce ministry said on Friday.

The decline compared with a Reuters poll forecast for a fall of 15.5% in exports, and against May's 22.5% decline.

In January-June, exports, a key driver of Thai growth, declined 7.09% from a year earlier.
