Thailand no longer in deflation
Thailand is no longer in a state of deflation after consumer prices rose for the second consecutive month in November, the commerce ministry said Tuesday.
Consumer prices rose 1.9 percent year-on-year in November, said Yanyong Phuangrach, the ministry's permanent secretary.
Food prices climbed 0.6 percent, due particularly to an increase in rice and rice products, meat and fish, while non-food sectors such as transportation and communication rose 4.2 percent.
“Thailand has gone out of deflation after prices rose for the last two months," Yanyong said.
