Cambodia’s border trade with Thailand down 4.5 percent in four months

Thailand’s cross-border trade rose by 26.7 percent in the first four months of this year, raising its government’s confidence that such trade will grow by 3-6 percent in 2021 after declining 1.7 percent last year.

However, cross border trade with Cambodia dropped by 4.5 percent during the same period, due largely to border closures.

Commerce Minister Jurin Laksanawisit revealed on June 1 that the country’s overall cross-border trade, including transit trade, totaled 526 billion baht (16.86 billion USD) between Jan-April, 295 billion baht of which belonged to border trade, up by 17 percent year-on-year, and 231 billion baht from transit trade, a rise of 41.9 percent.
