The Commerce Ministry is under pressure to lower this year’s export target, as the numbers for March are likely to show historically low year-on-year growth due to the plunge in global demand, a senior official said yesterday.
Commerce permanent secretary Siripol Yodmuangcharoen said the March figures could in turn result in first-quarter exports falling by more than 20 per cent from the same period last year.
“Inevitably, this would force the ministry to revise down this year’s export target,” said Siripol.
Last month’s export figures will be revealed today. (Nation)
I’m laughing… Quietly. 😉
It’s a show case : where reason is stronger than lunacy, wishful thinking and disillusion. Yes, I’m not afraid of big words.
Here is what I wrote last month, after the publication of figures for february.
Book it : in march, Thailand will, gently and with a smile, go back to the “minus 25 %” group.
It’s so easy… the clowns are so gullible… they believe in their own fantasies. They tried very hard to hide the disaster in february… by playing with grotesque gold exports figures (to Switzerland, read my article)…
It was impossible to rely on the same trick the month after…
Get ready… I will shoot the chart as soon as the total amount will be published tuesday.
Anyway. I’m confident the clowns will continue to tell us that everything is going to be okay, and that exports are going to rebound.
Ah, well… no… obviously not in april (because we had the revolucion), so let’s say in may. Yeah, may sounds good ! “Exports will pick up in may”. Voila. 😉
Commerce Minister Porntiva Nakasai said yesterday she would seek urgent discussions with the Finance and Industry ministries to design measures to promote exports.
She is confident that such a move would keep exports in positive territory.
The poor woman, this alleged minister who was working in a massage parlor in a previous life, is a master clown. 😉
She and her peers will never learn. Because they can’t but also because they don’t want to. Which is worse.
