Country Report
The article presents an outlook for the trade surplus in Thailand in 2010 and 2011. The balance of trade in the country is expected to further deteriorate due to the weakness in exports of electronic goods and electricity equipment. The trade surplus is forecasted to decline from 7.4% of gross domestic product in 2009 to 4.5% in 2010 and 3.7% in 2011. However, growth in goods imports will be supported by the robust private consumption.
