The Thai Industries Sentiment Index (TISI) in March fell to 101.6, the lowest level in past five months since October 2009, said Santi Vilassakdanont, advisory chairman of the Federation of Thai Industries (FTI).

It dropped for the second consecutive month from 114.5 in February, resulting from decreasing number of orders, sales volumes, production volumes, and operating turnover.

Concerns over political situation, which may turn to violent, caused consumers to slow down their spending, said Mr Santi.
