BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thailand's 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 for a rise of 13.5% in August in a Reuters poll and after July's 20.27% increase.

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

When the Baht falls—exports rise—pretty simple.  Why not encourage more of this?

Exactly.  I get more baht for my UK pension so I spend it locally.
