Confidence in the overall economy among surveyed economists was at its lowest level in three-and-a-half years in January and was expected to fall further over the next three months, Bangkok Poll reported on Tuesday. 

The research centre at Bangkok University, or Bangkok Poll, reported the results of a survey on confidence in Thai economy, interviewing 60 economists at 32 leading organisations between Jan 8 and 17.
