Importing from Thailand

Thailand imports around $202 billion USD worth of goods each year. Thailand’s biggest import partners are China, Japan and the European Union.

Thailand has seen a sharp decline in imports over the recent months, falling around 11% in the last year. This was largely because one of Thailand’s largest imports was crude oil and commodities; and oil prices have dropped significantly in recent years.
