Thailand's export in March remained battered by the impacts from last year's floods, according to the Commerce Ministry.


Despite positive growth in February, the export value showed a negative growth in March due to slow recovery in the farming and industrial sectors from floods.
Export in March dropped 6.54 per cent on year to US$19.8 billion (Bt606.44 billion). Import however grew largely by 25.62 per cent to $24.45 billion, resulting in a trade deficit of $4.58 billion.
