Finance Minister Korn Chatikavanij on Monday advised operators in Thailand’s currency exchange rate-affected businesses to brace themselves for a further strengthening of the baht.

Commenting on the continued baht appreciation, he said, the currency had strengthened naturally in tandem with economic growth, boosted by a substantial export increase.
