Thailand's manufacturing production index (MPI) in August rose a more than expected 14.52% from a year earlier, helped by an easing of Covid-19 curbs, the industry ministry said on Wednesday.

That compares with a forecast rise of 10.1% in factory output for August in a Reuters poll, and after July's revised 6.39% rise from a year earlier.
