Consumer confidence rises again

Index climbs for second consecutive month

- +

The Thai consumer confidence index hit 78.2 in July, the highest in 11 months, thanks to political and economic stability, a University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce survey said. 

The university announced Thursday that the index rose from 75.1 in June and improved for the second consecutive month following the May 22 coup.

Confidence in July resulted from the National Council for Peace and Order's approval of a 2.4-trillion-baht infrastructure investment project, export growth in June, and lower retail fuel prices.
