Thailand’s official statistics agency, the Ministry of Statistics and Census, has announced the country’s final GDP figures for the third quarter of 2018.
The government’s data released on Wednesday showed a slight dip in GDP from the previous quarter, which saw the country post an increase of 1.3% compared to the same quarter a year ago.
But the latest figure showed that GDP growth was slightly lower at 2.7%.
That was down from a year earlier, when GDP grew at 3.2%.
The economy is still expected to grow by around 6.5% in 2019.
The government said the growth was largely due to a weaker export market.
Thailand’s exports to the US jumped by 7.6% in the quarter.
However, that was mostly due to the strong demand for food products from the US.
According to the data, Thailand imported $831 million worth of goods from the United States last quarter.
