[BANGKOK] Thailand aimed for export growth of 5.0 per cent next year, helped by improving global economy, Deputy Prime Minister Somkid Jatusripitak said on Friday. "We set a strong growth target so that we will all work harder to achieve that. We also see the global economy improving next year," Somkid told reporters after a meeting with trade representatives.

The state planning agency National Economic and Social Development Board (NESDB) last month predicted export growth of 3.0 per cent in 2016.

Thai exports contracted in both 2013 and 2014, and they will decline again this year.
