TABLE-Thailand's main exports, markets in February

    BANGKOK, March 22 (Reuters) - Thailand's customs-cleared
exports in February dropped a less-than-expected 2.8 percent
from the same month of 2016, which had high figures, the
commerce ministry said on Wednesday.
   Exports in February 2016 were driven by gold and helicopters,
and excluding those items, exports last month increased 8.5
percent last month from a year earlier, the ministry said.

    The ministry aims for export growth of 5 percent this year
after a marginal 0.45 percent rise in 2016, the first expansion
in four years.
         
    Following are details from the Commerce Ministry:
