Thailand's economy expanded 1.0 percent quarter-on-quarter in the three months to March 2019, little-changed from an upwardly revised 0.9 percent growth in the previous period and missing market estimates of a 1.4 percent advance. Private consumption growth was steady while fixed investment slowed markedly despite a faster rise in government spending. Meantime, net exports contributed negatively to the GDP growth. GDP Growth Rate in Thailand averaged 0.94 percent from 1993 until 2019, reaching an all time high of 9.40 percent in the first quarter of 2012 and a record low of -6.30 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011.
