BANGKOK – Thailand’s economy is still expected to grow 3% this year, driven by exports, despite global uncertainty, the finance minister said on Monday.

However, shipments may see more impacts from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine late in the year, Arkhom Termpittayapaisith said at an agreement signing to support exporters.
