泰国经济2020年第三季度同比萎缩6.4%

新华社曼谷11月16日电泰国经济规划机构16日表示,在政府放松对新冠肺炎的限制并推出一系列刺激措施后,泰国经济在第三季度有所改善。


泰国国家经济及社会发展委员会(NESDC)表示,泰国7 - 9月国内生产总值(GDP)较上年同期萎缩6.4%,较前一季COVID-19疫情高峰时修正后的萎缩12.1%有所回升。


该委员会还将2020年经济萎缩预期从先前预测的7.3%上调至7.8%。


NESDC说,预计今年出口将下降7.5%,而不是先前预测的下降10%。


在周一的新闻发布会上,NESDC的秘书长Danucha Pichayanan说,除了旅游业,所有的经济指标在第三季度都有所改善,并补充说他的委员会预测2021年的增长率为3.5%到4.5%。


不过,他警告说,坚挺的泰铢以及高失业率仍将是明年经济增长的障碍。


多努恰建议,加快经济复苏的措施应侧重于管理COVID-19感染风险、帮助旅游业、支付公共支出、促进私人投资,以及为即将到来的干旱季节做好缓解准备。

 

BANGKOK, Nov. 16 (Xinhua) -- Thailand's economy improved in the third quarter after the government eased COVID-19 restrictions and then rolling out a series of stimulus measures, said Thailand's economic planning agency on Monday.

Thai gross domestic product (GDP) shrank 6.4 percent in July-September from a year ago, recovering from the prior quarter's revised 12.1 percent contraction at the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Economic and Social Development Council (NESDC) said.

The council also raised its 2020 outlook for a contraction of 6.0 percent from the previous forecast of 7.3 percent to 7.8 percent.

The NESDC said it expects exports to fall 7.5 percent this year instead of 10 percent fall as earlier predicted.

All the economic indicators, except for tourism, improved in the third quarter, said Danucha Pichayanan, NESDC's secretary-general on Monday's press briefing, adding that his council forecasts a growth of 3.5 percent to 4.5 percent in 2021.

However, he warned that the strong Thai baht currency, as well as high level of unemployment will remain obstacles for economic growth next year.

Danucha recommended that measures to accelerate economic rebound should focus on managing COVID-19 infection risks, helping the tourism sector, disbursing public spending, promoting private investment, as well as preparing mitigation for a pending drought season to come.
