Commerce Ministry adjusts plans to penetrate export markets



BANGKOK(NNT) – The COVID-19 situation has affected the economies of countries worldwide. Thailand is having to adjust its export and commercial plans to aid economic recovery. The Department of International Trade Promotion (DITP) has prepared over 250 projects to spearhead the penetration of export markets, focusing on online activities. It is also to organize expositions after the easing of restrictions that have been imposed to control COVID-19.

Mr Somdet Susomboon, DITP Director General, said today that the 250 projects that have been prepared to support, maintain and expand the export market, include promoting Thai products online, and online business matching, while organizing online virtual exhibitions in different regions worldwide, upgrading the image of Thai products and services in foreign countries, utilizing the government’s quality certification marks including Tmark, Demark, PM’s Award and Thai Select, and creating standards for quality and the safety of Thai products and services such as Halal food and organic agricultural standards.

The DIPT will lead Thai entrepreneurs to attend exhibitions abroad but it is necessary to take into account the readiness and regulations of each country. Many postponed exhibitions in Thailand can now be staged after the easing of restrictions that were imposed to control COVID-19. These include TILOG-LOGISTIX 2020, TAPA 2020, a food exposition, and the Bangkok Gems & Jewelry Fair that will be held from the end of August to September.
