Thailand’s economy could grow by up to 6.5 percent in 2012, recovering from the impact of months of devastating floods last year, Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra said on Monday. Government stimulus measures as well as post-flood rehabilitation and disaster prevention spending will drive the recovery, she told representatives from the US-ASEAN business council.
