Thailand’s economy had its weakest annual growth rate in four years, expanding 2.3% in the second quarter, as exports have declined amid rising trade tensions and a strong baht, noted a Reuters report announcing the news.

“We are trying, which is why there are these new measures, but global economic conditions like this, we will try to achieve our target of 3% growth,” Finance Minister Uttama Savanayana said.

The additional package comes months after the government rolled out a B316bn stimulus programme.
