[BANGKOK] Thailand's economy is expected to grow 3.5-3.6 per cent this year, driven by investment in infrastructure projects, the finance minister said on Friday.

Government projects will also help attract private investment, Apisak Tantivorawong said at a business event.

Growth in Southeast Asia's second-largest economy, which clocked at 3.2 per cent in 2016, still lags regional peers.
