Thailand economic monitor (Tailandês)

The Thai economy continues to perform well this year though growth will be lower than last year's. Thailand's real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth for the whole year is estimated to be 6.4 percent, compared to 6.8 percent last year. The macroeconomic situation remains robust, though higher oil prices and rising interest rates are likely to take their toll. Headline inflation will rise to 3 percent in 2004, compared to 1.8 percent last year, largely due to the increases in oil and electricity prices. Projections for 2005 indicate that inflation will rise further to around 4 percent as retail prices of diesel are adjusted fully to reflect world prices. GDP growth in 2005 is projected to be around 5.8 percent, slower than this year. This is in part due to deferred adjustment of retail prices of diesel and lower world demand for exports. The Government has announced its intention to float the retail price of diesel early next year, which would raise diesel price by more than a third of its current price; this will affect private consumption and private investment.
