BANGKOK, June 30 (Reuters) - Thailand recorded a current account surplus of $64 million in May, after a deficit of $0.7 billion in the previous month, the central bank said on Tuesday.
Exports, a key driver of growth, dropped 23.6% in May from a year earlier, after April’s 3.3% decline. Imports dropped 34.2%.
In May, the Thai economy continued to contract substantially due to declining shipments and tourism, it said in a statement.
