The economy will grow 4.6 per cent this year, against 4 per cent in 2017, Government Savings Bank's research centre forecasts.



    The bullish view is based on expectations for further strong growth in exports and services – especially tourism – in 2018, bank's president and chief executive officer Chatchai Payuhanaveechai said yesterday.

He said proposed government's investment in infrastructure, due to start this year, would boost domestic consumption.
