Thailand's manufacturing production index (MPI) in October dropped 3.71% from a year earlier, due to weaker exports and refinery maintenance shutdowns, the Industry Ministry said on Wednesday.

The figure compares with a forecast rise of 1.2% in factory output for October in a Reuters poll, and after September's revised 3.34% rise year-on-year.
