Thailand Set up Strategies to become the World Super Power for Fruit production
The Ministry of Commerce has resolved to step up efforts towards making Thailand the world’s fruit super power, drafting both short and long term strategies.
Deputy Minister of Commerce Sontirat Sontijirawong revealed after a strategic meeting on the nation’s fruit trade that the ministry has set up a working plan that involves the private sector and has both short and long term goals. The aim of the plan is to maintain the price, quality and safety of Thai fruits with the intent of making Thailand the world super power for fruit production.
The strategies are to first be applied to durian, coconut and mangosteen due to their high volume of production and export.
