Strong baht puts pressure on exports
The strength of the baht, which has reached a six-year
high against the dollar, spells bad news for Thailand’s export
competitiveness, a leading research institute has warned.
A report just out from the Thai Farmers Research Center (TRFC)
said that mid-March’s six-month high of 42.47 baht to the greenback, down
from 43.5-44 baht at the end of last year, was mainly due to a decline in
the US dollar rather than domestic factors.
