Thai exports dropped 3.5% year-on-year in January to $17.3b due to declines in farm-product exports, especially natural rubber and rice, NewsNow reported. Chantira Jimreivat Vivatrat, deputy director-general of the Department of International Trade Promotion, said on Wednesday that export value fell due to decreases in the value of farm exports as well as petroleum-related products including refined crude, chemicals, and plastic pellets.
