Thai June exports fall 23.17% y/y, worse than forecast

    BANGKOK, July 24 (Reuters) - Thailand's exports in June
dropped by a bigger-than-expected 23.17% from a year earlier,
led by lower shipments of cars, gold and plastic pellets, the
commerce ministry said on Friday.
    The decline compared with a Reuters poll forecast for a fall
of 15.5% in exports, and against May's 22.5% decline.
    In January-June, exports, a key driver of Thai growth,
declined 7.09% from a year earlier.
