The figures represented a year–on–year growth of 5.4 percent. Experts suggest this is a very impressive growth in the context of global economic downturn.

Because of financial crisis, consumers in US have reduced their expenditure, especially on clothes. Thus garment export sector in Thailand suffered decline in October, stood at $1.605 billion, down 2.6 percent year-on-year.

On the other hand, exports to the other major markets still kept strong growth, especially EU and Japan, totaled $1.143 billion and 401.6 billion respectively, escalated by 5.51 and 30.86 percent.
