TABLE-Thailand's main exports, markets in November

BANGKOK, Dec 26 (Reuters) - Thailand's customs-cleared
exports in November jumped 10.2 percent from year earlier, far
above forecast, as demand from all major markets increased,
Commerce Ministry data showed on Monday. 
    Higher global oil prices lifted the prices for Thai
commodities and oil-related goods, the ministry said.
 
    The ministry now predicts exports, worth about two-thirds of
the economy, will rise this year after three straight years of
decline. 
    In the first 11 months of 2016, exports eased 0.05 percent
from a year earlier.
    The Bank of Thailand last week predicted exports would fall
0.6 percent this year and be flat in 2017. 
            
    Following are details from the Commerce Ministry:
