Thailand's export value was US$229.52 billion in 2012, an increase of 3.12% from the previous year, Srirat Rastapana, director general of the Exports Promotion Department at the Ministry of Commerce, said on Wednesday.

The import value for last year was up 8.22% from 2011 to US$247.59 billion, posting a total trade deficit of US$18.07 billion, she added.
