BANGKOK: Thailand's exports are expected to rise 10-12 per cent this year as the global economy recovers, but the country's coronavirus outbreak remains a negative factor, the national shippers' council said on Tuesday.

In the third quarter, exports, a rare bright spot in the economy, are forecast to increase 8-10 per cent from a year earlier, the group told a briefing.
