BANGKOK: Thailand's exports are expected to rise 15per cent in the second quarter from a year earlier, powered by improved global demand and after coming off a low base last year, the country's shippers' council said on Tuesday.

While maintaining its export growth forecast of 6per cent-7per cent this year, the group said shipments could rise 10per cent-15per cent if Thailand can address a container shortage and high freight rates.
