Bangkok (VNA) – Thailand’s exports are expected to drop 10 percent this year, deeper than the previous forecast of 8 percent, according to the Thai National Shippers' Council (TNSC). The TNSC pointed to factors such as the strengthening baht and the impact of the COVID-19 on the global economy including Thailand’s trade partners and disrupted logistics systems. The only positive factor is the increasing export of agricultural products, food and medical supplies.

The decision may have disappointed fans of the brilliant bugs, but it provides an unusually serene atmosphere as the insects blink on and off, appearing to dance through the black night air. The natural spectacle lasts just 10 days in early summer, and is the final chapter of a firefly's life. "The glowing is the courtship behaviour of fireflies. They glow to communicate between the male and the female," Katsunori Funaki, from the city's tourism division, told AFP. "During the short, 10-day period, they find a partner and lay eggs for the next year."
