Thailand's exports are expected to grow at least 6% this year after a strong first half, helped by higher food exports and a weak baht, the head of a shippers' group said on Monday.

If annual shipments increase just 5% in the second half of the year, shipments will rise 8.7% for the whole year, Chaichan Chareonsuk, chairman of the Thai National Shippers' Council, told the Thailand Survival seminar organised by Nation Group .
