The Sun (Malaysia) - - SUNBIZ -

BANGKOK: Thai­land’s econ­omy can still grow around 3.3-3.4% this year thanks to gov­ern­ment stim­u­lus mea­sures, a se­nior fi­nance min­istry of­fi­cial said yes­ter­day. Growth is ex­pected to pick up to 4.4-4.5% next year, also driven by pub­lic in­fra­struc­ture projects, Som­chai Su­j­japongse, the fi­nance min­istry’s per­ma­nent sec­re­tary, told re­porters. The gov­ern­ment has said it will in­tro­duce ad­di­tional mea­sures in a bid to boost year-end spend­ing and ac­tiv­ity. South­east Asia’s sec­ond-largest econ­omy ex­panded 2.8% last year. – Reuters
