BOT gives latest Ex-Im figures
Economy still looking healthy says report card
The Bank of Thailand (BOT) Northern Office announced that
the northern economic situation in October 2004 was improving at a slightly
slower rate than in September, but exports have continued to grow, while
imports have fallen in some areas.
Year on year figures show exports increased by 7.9
percent, or USD 183.1 million, compared to the same period last year.
Exports through the northern industrial region increased by only 2.5
percent, since some factories are in the process of changing their
out-of-date production lines to more modern ones, but worryingly, some have
moved their production base lines to China.
