Thailand’s Manufacturing Production Index Surprises with 3.43% Rise in April

Thailand’s manufacturing production index saw an unexpected increase of 3.43% in April compared to the same period last year, attributed to heightened exports and tourism, as reported by the industry ministry on Thursday.

This figure stands in contrast to a projected 1.1% year-on-year decline for April in a Reuters survey, and marks a recovery from the 5.13% decrease recorded in March.
