The Commerce Ministry’s Trade Negotiations Department plans to promote products indigenous to Narathiwat province in the Asean market, the department’s director-general Auramon Supthaweethum said on August 27.

She said officials from the department have been meeting with communities in Narathiwat on August 27 and 28, including the Tak Bai Salted Kula Community Enterprise Group, which produces geographical indication products, as well as small and medium enterprises that produce garments, processed seafood etc.

The department will also provide information on how goods can be exported to Asean countries, she said.
