The demand for plastic products, air conditioners and components and petroleum products by Thailand’s trading partners continues to grow due to lower oil prices and China’s inability to step up its production to satisfy market demand.
The EXIM BANK Chairman further stated that Thailand is likely to export more vegetables, fruits, processed sea food as well as jewelry to the U.S. as its economy is doing better.
The cassava production in Thailand will also grow in accordance with the global market. Other products that are expected to do well include rubber, gloves, condoms, cars, auto parts and electric circuit board.
