June 25 (Reuters) – Thailand’s bullish export growth during the first half of 2010 is expected to be sustained in the second half despite possible economic slowdown in key euro zone markets, Bank of Thailand Deputy Governor Bandid Nijathaworn said on Friday.
“Exports in May still showed encouraging growth even when we faced an uncertain domestic situation. The good trend should continue in the second half but to what extent will depend mainly on the global economy,” he said.
“Exports to economies in the EU may slow down, but they would be offset by our shipments to Asian markets,” the deputy governor told reporters. (Reporting by Boontiwa Wichakul; Writing by Vithoon Amorn; Editing by Robert Birsel
