Exports for February were down 5.83% on the same month last year, with a total value of US$17.92 billion, permanent secretary for commerce Watcharee Wimuktayon said on Thursday.
Imports totalled US$19.18 billion, an increase of 5.27%, meaning a total trade deficit of US$1.55 billion for the month, she said.
Mrs Watcharee attributed the decline in exports to the global economic recession, particularly in the US and Japan which are Thailand’s major export markets.
