The article offers forecasts of Thailand's net exports which were considered significant drag on the country's real gross domestic product (GDP) growth of 6.7 percent year-on-year in the third quarter of 2010. It states that the 6.7 percent GDP growth is below the trade figures released for October 2010 which suggests that net exports could rebound in the fourth quarter. It adds that a subdued real GDP growth of 3.6 percent is expected in 2011 due to expectations of slow down in external demand.
