Thailand's overall economic activities in January continued to soften from the previous month, due to contraction in merchandise exports, according to the report of the Bank of Thailand.
According to its report on the Economic and Monetary Conditions for January 2014, the tourism sector was further affected by domestic political protest. Private-sector consumption and investment as well as manufacturing production continued to be subdued as households and businesses remained cautious in spending.
