BANGKOK, Nov 27 – Thailand’s economy is expected to grow slightly more than four per cent in the final quarter of this year from the same period a year ago due to improved exports and tourism, a senior official from the finance ministry said yesterday.

That should put full-year growth close to the ministry’s forecast of 1.4 per cent, said Kritsada Jinavijarana, director-general of the Fiscal Policy Office. In the first nine months, Thailand grew only 0.2 per cent from a year earlier, depressed by weak exports and months of political unrest.
