The article presents economic conditions of Thailand. A bomb exploded in the tourist town on Sungai Kolok in late March 2004, wounding 30 people in the first instance of violence in southern Thailand spreading to tourist areas. Consumer prices climbed to a 33-month high in the year to March 2004. The headline inflation rate of 2.3%, compared with 2.2% in February, was mainly caused by higher food prices � up 5.8% � as food traders increased their prices in response to the outbreak of bird flu, which has decimated poultry flocks across Thailand.
