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.

“Although the Bank of Thailand is able to manage the currency efficiently, it cannot eventually resist the market mechanism as the baht is in greater demand than the US dollar in the market,” he said.

Currencies undervalued to export more easily

The country has been most successful in this way is China, which has now earned enough foreign exchange reserves : about $ 1.3 trillion, which are also often invested in government bonds ( mainly U.S. Treasuries). To remain competitive vis-à-vis China, most Asian countries have therefore agreed to some undervaluation of their currencies to stay in line with that of the Chinese Yuan.
