Finance Minister affirms the 2012 export growth target at 15%


BANGKOK, 21 September 2012 – The Finance Ministry has affirmed that this year’s export growth target will remain unchanged from its initial estimate. 

Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Kittiratt Na-Ranong said on Thursday that the country’s export growth target will remain at 15 percent.

Mr. Kittiratt said that this target has been set to help encourage related state agencies to work harder for the country.

In case the 15-percent growth target is missed, a review of all works must be conducted to find any flaw in order to help perfect the government’s performance in the future.

Nevertheless, the Deputy PM believes that all parties have been working their best to date.
