The Thai economy is steadily expanding thanks to February's exports, tourism and consumption, says the Bank of Thailand. Consumer purchasing power accelerated from January to reach pre-crisis levels last seen 18 months ago, said Suchart Sakkankosone, senior director for the Domestic Economy Department. High farm incomes - especially in oil palm, rice and rubber - and tourism gains drove sales of passenger cars, motorcycles, pickup trucks and imported consumer goods. The Private Consumption Index rose by 9.7% year-on-year last month compared with 0.3% the previous February. Orders for electronic parts and electrical appliances, and high farm prices drove exports. Demand from Asean and China drove exports in recent months, said Mr Suchart. The public debt crises in Greece, Portugal and Ireland were the main drags on global consumption.
