BANGKOK : Thailand's exports are expected to rise between 6per cent to 8per cent this year, compared with a previous forecast for a 5per cent to 8per cent increase, helped by a weak baht and increased global demand, the national shippers' group said on Tuesday.

Exports, a key driver of growth, rose 12.7per cent in the first half of 2022 from a year ago and the momentum should continue into the second half, Chaichan Chareonsuk, chairman of the Thai National Shippers' Council, told a news conference.
