Thailand: Fruit exports flourish through FTA deals

Thailand exported $2.65 billion worth of fruits last year, a 17.05 percent increase on the year before. This increase is driven by the country's free trade agreements (FTA) with ASEAN, China, Japan, South Korea, India, Australia, New Zealand, Peru, Chile, and Hong Kong, says Auramon Supthaweethum, director general of Trade Negotiations Department under the Commerce Ministry.

She added that ASEAN and China are the main markets for Thai fruits, accounting for $2.13 billion or about 80 percent of the total value of Thai fruit export last year.


As reported by nationmultimedia.com, the top three export items are durian, longan and mangosteen.
