The consumer confidence index declined for the fourth straight month to 80.03 in July from 81.6 in June, the Economic and Business Forecasting Centre at the University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce reported on Wednesday.
Consumer confidence in the overall economy also dropped, from 71.8 in June to 70.6 in July. Confidence in job opportunity was down to 72.4 from 73.5 and confidence in future income dropped to 97.9 from 99.3 reported in June, it said.
The centre attributed the decline in all consumer confidence indices to concerns over the current anti-government protests and the imposition of the Internal Security Act in three districts of Bangkok.
