Exports up 4.28% last month

Thai exports in July 2019 rose 4.28% from a year earlier, on the back of rising gold prices and a less-volatile trade war between China and the United States.

 

The Director-General of the Trade Policy and Strategy Office (TPSO), Pimchanok Vonkorpon, said today that Thai exports were valued at 21.20 billion US dollars last month, while the value of Thai imports was 21.09 billion dollars. The result was a trade surplus of 1.91%.

 

Exports in July contracted 0.95% from the previous month, but were 4.28% higher year-on-year. In addition, the 0.95% contraction was the lowest in five months, since February. This was due to the surging gold prices on global market and the China-US trade war, which has not worsened.

 

Thai exports to China and the US were positive. Thailand was able to export more products, namely cosmetics, processed agricultural goods and fruit. If the monthly export value stays above 21.75 billion dollars in the remaining months of 2019, the country’s export sector will not experience negative growth this year.

<deleted> just give the raw numbers and not percentages. Even a trading economics chart would be better. Where's the Roman emperor when you need him?

Gold exports soared 407% in July from a year earlier. This could be a signal that something is afoot.

Maybe for good reasons the rich are shipping out their gold to safer havens. 

Actual physical gold? Would be a bit strange to start hauling Fort Knox over the border.

Your comment makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.gold is known as an investors safe haven.sticking it in another country makes no difference at all.the price will the same in Bangkok,Brixton or Berlin.also why would you move gold to another country and have to pay import,excise and tax on it and losing.if you invest in gold you would buy and sell it in the same country.

Uh? Try harder!

An even more senseless reply,your getting good at this.are you still chewing on you own words from gobbling it off and getting put in your place yesterday.

please do explain to us on Thai visa about your theory of rich exporting gold to a safe haven or go hide out for another day in the dark hole you were in.

Take the gold out and exports fell by 0.4%. Something they must have forgotten to mention.

It's not really the physical export of gold that increased but rather

Thailand could have physically exported less gold but still experienced more export revenue.
