Chart, exports and imports by country, until september 2008

(Source Bank Of Thailand, table EC_XT_002).

Here is an update of my new chart exports/imports by country, with the datas for september.


The first 3 groups are still Asean (with 114,3 billions THB), China+HK+SK+Taiwan and Others.


Middle East is falling. Not a surprise (drop of oil prices).

The first 3 are China+HK+SK+Taiwan (116,1 billions), followed by Japan and Asean.

We can see by the way that the trade deficit with Japan is important (exports at 59,25 billions – imports at 99,5 billions)… The auto industry in Thailand is a really good business for the Japanese with all the incentives (BOI privileges, tax cuts etc.) they managed to get… 😉

    In The Export from Thailand chart is USA just included in the “Other” group?
    It would be interesting to see the trend of export from Thailand to USA.

    USA are in the NAFTA group and represent 90 % of the total amount of this group.

Thailand Crisis

Coup, Economic slowdown, Terror In the South... The situation is worsening in Thailand. Bumpy road like often before.

But this time, it's different.

The key to understand the present turmoil is the inevitable... succession of King Bhumibol.
