Thailand recorded a current account deficit of $1.9 billion in June after a deficit of $3.7 billion the previous month, the central bank said on Wednesday.

Exports, a key driver of growth, rose 11.1% in June from a year earlier, with annual imports up 24.3% and a trade surplus of $2.1 billion. The economy in the second quarter improved from the prior period, it said.
