Thailand's weak baht is good for exports and the overall economy, Finance Minister Arkhom Termpittayapaisith said on Friday.
The baht depreciation will likely affect margins of importers and push up costs, Mr Arkhom added.
The currency has been hovering at its weakest level in almost five years against the United States dollar.
