Thailand's customs-based exports declined for a seventh straight month in April, down 7.6% from a year earlier, commerce ministry data showed on Tuesday.

The reading came in worse than a 2% year-on-year drop forecast for April in a Reuters poll, and came after March's 4.2% drop. (Reporting by Orathai Sriring, Kitiphong Thaichareon and Satawasin Staporncharnchai; Editing by Kanupriya Kapoor)
