Retail Sales in Thailand

Thailand Retail Sales | Economic News & Forecasts

Thailand - Retail Sales

The economy gained traction at the start of the year supported by healthy household spending, as better weather boosted farming income. However, while a robust performance in the tourism sector ushered in an improvement in exports, rising imports limited the external sector’s contribution. Overall, available data for Q2 points to slightly lower growth as the economy is not yet firing on all cylinders. Manufacturing production contracted in April and booming imports drove the trade balance to near even. In addition, consumer confidence edged down in May but businesses became more optimistic.
