BANGKOK, Nov 17 (Reuters) - Domestic car sales in Thailand shrank for a 17th straight month in October, down 1.4% from a year earlier to 74,114 vehicles, after a 4.1% fall in the previous month, the Federation of Thai Industries (FTI) said on Tuesday.
The improved sales were helped by relaxed coronavirus restrictions, government relief measures and launches of new car models, it said.
